The new residences at The Athenaeum come with a plush bedroom, luxurious bathroom and separate living area, which has a kitchenette and dining alcove too. Some of the living spaces have sofas by B&B Italia, which Martin adorned with leather feet for a feeling of glamour and elegance. Dining tables have been finished with a rich varnish, while cabinets made by the renowned British furniture designer, Julian Chichester, have been lacquered with light colours to add a feeling of sophistication. Kitchen accessories are by Joseph Joseph, while the rich red velvet trim on the curtains add a touch of quirkiness, and are made by a solo Hampshire artisan. We have residences ideal for individuals, couples or families – and the latter have high-end bunk beds in a special niche to accommodate the little ones.
Importantly, Martin has also introduced just the right level of technology into our new residences. Bathrooms have intelligent toilets, incorporating features such as remote controls and seat warming technology. Lighting incorporated into cornicing in the rooms gives the residences a gentle light, with other lighting options that are uncomplicated but practical.
