Ensconced in the iconic South Bank Tower, a soaring landmark on the wings of the River Thames, this 2,368sqf three-bedroom duplex apartment on the 36th and 37th floors commands an awe-inducing perspective of the London skyline. The double-height glass windows give panoramic visibility to the exceptional views – which include stunning sunsets over the West End – and allow natural light to pour in.
To complement the modernheritage style of the building and its sun-kissed interiors, interior designers at Goddard Littlefair filled the home with an exquisite design scheme of sleek bespoke furnishings and an alluring medley of gleaming bronzes, warm coppers and soothing browns and blues.
In the living area, Goddard Littlefair installed tall screens (each over 6m tall) in a liquefied bronze finish, to gently emphasise the generous ceiling height and demarcate space.
Overhead, an arresting hanging sculpture designed by the interior design firm, in conjunction with lighting design specialist Jona Hoad, features a multitude of linear, refractive panels in glass and bronze, adding to the chemistry and energy of the space.
In the adjoining library, casual seating corner and dining space, a suite of carefully curated details, from the 360-degree rotating tub chairs to the oyster silk wool curtains, complete the elegant and ethereal look.
