Chelsea Apartment

Main contractor: 800 Group
Design: Mlinaric, Henry and Zervudachi
Architect: Timothy Hatton Architects

Striking and luxurious finishes were used in this Chelsea apartment to dramatic effect:

Bespoke kitchen in a luxury finish of high gloss polyester lacquer; we paid a visit to the Codrington Library in Oxford in order to match the paint colour there, a favourite of the client. Custom made satin brushed stainless steel splashbacks and worktops with integrated sinks and drainer alongside Broughton Moore slate worktops with a honed finish. The handles are in brushed stainless steel and were made to suit the door widths exactly.

Bright red lacquered cupboard doors co-ordinate with the flooring in a downstairs hallway.

In the main entrance hall, wallpanelling incorporating cloaks cupboard, staircase and room doors in the highly figured veneer Tamo Ash. Bookmatching the veneer to make a stunning feature wall.

Bathroom in white corian. The curved bath surround is constructed from laminated corian sheet, with only one visible joint, giving a clean and soft look. Underlit plinths give a floating effect to the bath and vanity unit and add a soft glow. Glass door knobs and the clients own wall lights complete this minimal, yet elegant and glamourous room.
