Foster and Partners designed the splendid duplex penthouse in the second tower of The Corniche development; the towers form part of a broader transformation of the Albert Embankment area.
The penthouse is set across two floors, connected by a helical staircase. Decorated and styled with furnishings by the acclaimed TG Studio, the interior is influenced by the incredible skyline views of London that surround it.
With curved glass balustrades and contrasting dark wood steps, the staircase acts as the central feature of the interior with an impressive sculptural presence. Backed by large works of abstract art intersecting each storey, there is an effortless flow between spaces, reminiscent of the winding curves and movement of the River Thames below.
The reception hall greets guests upon entering the penthouse featuring a double-height atrium and large floor to ceiling windows that look across Westminster. A bespoke curved desk can be founded in the curved bay of the window, offering the ultimate, definitely London’s most impressive workplace. Bespoke joinery runs in parallel across either side of the interior, while a marble and brass-trimmed centre library divides the room to create more intimate spaces.
The first floor is the centre of entertainment, including a bar, formal living room, dining room with controlled temperature, a wine wall, and an informal reception room. The penthouse features three kitchen spaces: a primary kitchen preparation kitchen, and an outdoor kitchen.
The entrance floor houses the four bedrooms, all with en-suites set into the curved bays of the structure. The master bedroom includes two bathrooms, one featuring a free-standing bathtub and inbuilt television, the other a large shower space with a rain shower and body jets. Three of the bedrooms contain curved, large windows providing with large beds positioned outwards to utilise the 180-degree views without leaving the comfort of the bed.
