A space to look in + look at London differently
There are a couple of ground floor spaces in one of the townhouses that don’t offer a satisfactory view of the Victorian Mayfair townhouses they’re surrounded by. As a result, we designed two rooms that look inward instead of out. In one of the rooms, I created a sofa built into the window alcove that creates this ‘looking in’ feeling. With a veil that can be pulled across, it creates a feeling of something slightly theatrical too. Practically speaking, this sofa can also be a child’s bed. With mirrors, silk panelling, a new bronze rail for the TV and storage space, plus a copper and aubergine mosaic tile in the walk-in shower, the room feels inviting with a quintessentially Athenaeum feeling. This room can be optionally let out with the room opposite to create a family space, where we’ve created a similar cosy, homely feeling.
The new townhouse residences at The Athenaeum offer encounters with the city that’s not quite like anywhere else in London. Combining the contemporary with the classical while taking into account life’s luxuries, this is all about the experience of soaking up a London lifestyle. DISCOVER TOWNHOUSE RESIDENCES
