This penthouse is located in a historic building in Notting Hill, London. The ambition of Banda Design Studio was to create a space bursting with personality. After months of work, the result is absolutely stunning. This exceptional design reflects timeless elegance and high-quality craftsmanship.
To create continuity in the whole, artworks were added.
The penthouse is fully customised and reflects the enormous dedication of the Banda Design Studio team. The project has an area of over 2,000 sqm and a private roof terrace of another 500 sqm. The design studio's goal was to create a home where the boundaries between interior and exterior are blurred. Upon entering the property via the lift or the striking spiral staircase, you are welcomed by a generous entrance hall leading to the living area.
The enormous living space contains exceptionally high ceilings, a collection of traditional oak beams and offers soothing garden views. The luxurious furnishings emphasise the height of the eaves. Furthermore, the black Marquina fireplace, designed by Banda Design Studio, in combination with the large mirror with a weathered look, makes you dream away to beautiful French places. The doors in the reception area hide the entrances to the guest toilet and the second and third bedrooms, which brings a lot of peace. In addition, there is a shared central bathroom. The guest bedroom has a custom-made bed with a walnut headboard, again designed by Banda Design Studio. The room was further complemented by Rose Uniacke side tables. To create continuity in the whole, a work of art was also added to the room, this time a design by Caroline Walls called She Lay Down Beneath the Silence. The cosy walls received accents of sage green fine wool. There is also a custom-designed corner sofa called 'The Alexandra' by Charles Zana in Pierre Frey mohair. Artworks include a striking work by Tracey Emin, Sleeping on a Sunday and a second work by Gregg Irby, At a Glance II. The ombré carpet was custom made by Stark Carpet. Finally, a unique cupboard from the 1950s, made of natural reed and jacaranda, with copper handles, catches the eye.
This penthouse, located in a historic building in London, needed a soul and style to match its iconic surroundings. Timeless materials such as marble, brass and wood are a nod to the building's history, while streamlined furnishings provide a contemporary flair. Want to know more about this penthouse?
