Penthouse Apartment W11- Renovation - / Notting Hill
- Living Space: 900 ft²
- Bedrooms: 2
- Bathrooms: 1
Brief and Scope:
Kia Designs have refurbished a 2 bedroom penthouse in the vibrant heart of Notting Hill. The design transformed an empty shell into an ultra contemporary home that blurs the lines between art and functionality.
A boxy corridor, multiple doors and a dark passageway between the kitchen and living room were demolished to create a large open plan space, ideal for entertaining but also allowing the kitchen much needed access to the large windows and surplus light available in the living room. The artistic client required an island for buffet style entertaining, but in essence wanted a kitchen that didn’t look like a kitchen, but added extra “wow factor” to the space and looked at home amongst her striking art pieces. Extra, handleless storage was added to maintain a minimalist look, keeping the lines neat, the focus on the art and the area free of clutter. The rounded Corian table top helped soften the sharp lines and the under cabinet lighting lifts the space and floods light into every corner. Double doors to the room provide the requisite “wow” unveil.
The ultra modern design continues in the master bedroom. The floating bed is both futuristic and playful, whilst creating an airy and open look. The asymmetry and unpredictability of the cupboards looks right at home alongside the client’s fine art collection and provides ample bedroom storage. The minimalist nature of the room and the use of cool colour tones keep the space restful and tranquil, worlds away from the colour and excitement outside the front door.
More warmth has been injected into the bathroom. Whilst the room is also bathed in clean, pure light, an overall feeling of warmth is created by the blue/grey floor tiles being reflected by the white gold mosaic stones. The subtly patterned wall adds interest and sophistication without detracting from the soothing nature of the space, or competing with any feature art.
The gallery along the stairwell is a sly nod to the cutting edge galleries along Portobello Road and to the area’s history and ties to top photographers and fashionable residents. The photos themselves inject a sense of the client and her family, that compliments, rather than competes with the other pieces throughout the flat. As the first thing you see when you enter the flat, the display sets the tone for this unique home, where the cutting edge design transforms everyday personal effects into modern installations.
