Apartment on the Thames
Client Private Client Location London Completed October 2013
Tara Bernerd & Partners was responsible for the interior architecture and bespoke interior design for this unique 2,000 square foot private apartment situated on the Thames, London. Located in a landmark Foster & Partners building, the flat boasts unparalleled views of the river and Chelsea Embankment.
Whilst embracing open-plan living, the apartment is carefully zoned to include cosy, more seductive areas that create a feeling of intimacy. A feature bookshelf-come-fireplace was instated in the main living space to create a more inviting area to sit, read and enjoy the view without detracting from the overall feeling of light and space.
Drawing upon its urban location, the design scheme completely embodies Bernerd’s design philosophy with its mix of concrete, woods and petrol blue leathers. However, raw materials are carefully balanced by soft, rich velvets and luxurious finishes, as well as an interesting and eclectic mix of artwork and decorative objects.
