THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
Echlin Studio is an architecture and interior design firm that is renowned for its luxurious interiors, which combine vibrant colours pops with opulent British craft; so it is no wonder when the studio was invited to develop one of the penthouses for the new Rathbone Square development located in the highly desirable location of Fitzrovia, London.
Set out over two floors, the penthouse boasts impressive view out over the city, terraces paces and lots of natural light. The main living quarters are located on the highest floor, making the most of the views and natural light that floods through the large floor to ceiling windows.
Split into three sections, the main room consists of a formal living area at the northern end, a central dining space adjacent to the kitchen and an informal living area on its southern side.
Defined by its narrow frame, the dining table and chairs appear almost weightless, limiting any obstruction and allowing light to pass through the room. Seating eight people comfortably, the dining area is positioned adjacent to the kitchen, creating a social hub and epicentre to the penthouse. With a large footprint extending into the breakfast bar and kitchen, this part of the property is easily adaptable, creating a multi-use space for all of life’s needs.
While the living quarters are open plan, the designers have visually split the space into sections by assigning collections of materials, textures and colours to provide unique characters that work together, unifying under one style.
The informal side extracts colours from a beautiful work of art located directly behind the sofa. The seating has been upholstered with blue and cream fabrics, accessorised with a large collection of cushions in metallic hues.
On the opposite side, the formal living space pairs rich green leather with small pops of golden yellow. The artwork takes on darker tones, adding an essence of mystery and movement to the interior, its impressive textures echoed in the plush rug that neatly frames the seating arrangement.
The use of dark wood flows through this part of the interior, used in the construction of the sideboard, along the surface of the dining table and up across the cabinetry of the kitchen and storage units. Set against the whites of the surrounding walls and marble countertop, the contrast adds depth to the design whilst defining the use of each area in an elegant and unintrusive way.
With large floor to ceiling windows facing the bed in the master bedroom, there is no better way to wake up in the morning or go to sleep at night, taking in the impressive view and feeling connected to the energy of the city. A storage wall has been constructed in dark wood to divide the en-suite bathroom from the main bedroom, creating a dressing area and corridor for additional privacy.
In the bathroom, the finest details have been planned out, from the inclusion of a miniature fridge to store fresh and cooling cosmetics to concealed storage and even a carefully positioned dual sink and an oversized mirror to make the most of the natural light coming in through the skylight.
The home office and study is a calm oasis, hidden away from the rest of the house. Situated behind the staircase on the upper floor, this small room has been utilised to its maximum potential.
By limiting the amount of furniture, the room can easily be adapted for daily needs, exercise and hobbies. The simple colour palette of black, white and gold create add sophistication but also allow the user’s activities within the space to transform and decorate as items are introduced and removed.
