The client Arran Patel hired TG studio to transform the unit from the standard developer spec into a personal and luxurious home. As the property is of highest public interest and the interiors listed by English Heritage as very significant, the floor plan had to be broadly maintained but all staircases, balustrading and partitioning, where possible, were replaced.

The Studio and Arran worked closely together removing all bathrooms, floor finishes, built in wardrobes and the kitchen. The master bedroom, which is located on the top floor, is now reached through a new staircase that turns around an oak clad storage room reached off the main entrance hall.

TG – Studio enlarged the floor area on this level and separated the space into a walk in wardrobe, finished in oak and sheep leather and personalised to Arran’s needs. The master bedroom space is open plan but can be closed to the triple height living room by an electrical operated curtain.

Arran let The Studio select and furnish the entire penthouse and a meridiani bed in blue velvet was chosen in this bedroom flanked by vividly colored laquered bedside tables from Lema. The master ensuite has been enlarged too and now features a Portuguese travertine stone which has a cave like quality. The bathroom features an extra-large walk in shower with a flush TV and a bespoke double sink unit finished in the stone, mirror and the textile oak present throughout the Penthouse, which enhances the earthy and organic feel of this sanctuary.

The middle and lower floor (floor 4 & 5 of the building) are occupied by two levels of entertaining. A new staircase has been designed connecting both levels, featuring oak veneer, plain glass and wooden stringers painted in off white. The staircase consists of a bridge that connects to a library which is cantilevering the main part of the staircase. This library unit is the feature of the staircase and also forms the balustrade to one side.

It offers storage for books, statues and other artefacts Arran collects. The upper floor measures approximately 800 sqft and accommodates a very comfortable seating area and a zone for the pool table, a collector’s item owned by the client. The living room features furniture from Poltrona frau, knoll and Lema. The lower open floor plan is laid out as a relaxed kitchen zone, dining area and tv watching area.

The TV area is located opposite the kitchen and balances in its elevation the open plan kitchen. The joinery accommodates the AV equipment and a visible library and is kept very white with arrabascato stone as a vertical feature behind the TV. The dining table is from Poliform as are the chairs, the sofa is from zanotti, the rug from the rug company. From there the penthouse gives access to two bedrooms with a dressing area and en suite each a secondary entrance to the apartment and a guest WC and storage.

The two en suite bathrooms are located in two gothic towers of the building which gives them great views of the surrounding area and a triple ceiling height. They have been finished in Arrabascato marble and each feature a low hanging chandelier to play with the unusual ceiling height. The flooring throughout the penthouse is by Schotten and Hansen, the kitchen by Gemini design and features gaggenau appliances with arrabescato backsplash and Pietra Serena worktop.

Two stones that are characteristic through their veining and are considered as character stones explains Thomas, director of TG-Studio. Thomas and Arran have enjoyed this project so much that they are now looking to working together creating luxurious places. They are currently looking in London and New York for their next project under a joint banner.
