ZPD recently completed an exciting residential conversion in London – Unique in that the apartment spans the entire top floor of it’s mid-victorian building in Putney.
Our design team completely re-imagined the internal layout. Designing large electric roof lights, wonderfully minimalist floor to ceiling glass doors leading to the terraces and creating additional accommodation – a bedroom and shower room – in what is now a stylish, light filled, yet quietly understated Penthouse Apartment.
The concept, whilst refreshingly contemporary is sympathetic to the building and its surroundings – the apartment sits in a conservation area – and the design team were successful in having all aspects of the scheme approved by planning.
The thoughtful use of high quality materials and bespoke finishes were an integral aspect of the commission, soundproofing was installed throughout, (we like to keep the neighbours happy!) and bespoke glass, acid etched and coloured was used to clad the bathroom walls.
The designers visited Venice in search of the perfect plaster finish for the wet room – sourcing a subtle waterproof plaster treatment executed by Venetian artisans. And the restrained colour pallet throughout, softened the angular architectural aspects of the space, transforming what was a modest traditional apartment into a luxurious modernist home.
