A UNIQUE new con­cept in lux­ury liv­ing Lon­don-style is be­ing brought to Belfast with the launch of FX.

Named in hon­our of the city’s bur­geon­ing film and TV in­dus­try, FX is a new kind of res­i­dence with in­te­ri­ors cre­ated by a team of top de­sign­ers from Lon­don.

Aimed at peo­ple who ap­pre­ci­ate the finer things in life, these new one bed­room city cen­tre homes are a first for Belfast and en­joy a top lo­ca­tion just off Chich­ester Street, 100 yards from city hall.

A concierge will wel­come you to the pres­ti­gious build­ing which comes with a res­i­dents’ lounge, a rooftop gar­den and pri­vate gym.

The in­te­rior styling of the FX build­ing makes it look like a five star lobby in a high end ho­tel.

A grand en­trance way with over­sized mir­rors, doors and lights sets the scene per­fectly for the op­u­lence within.

The res­i­dents lounge can be used for busi­ness meet­ings or for plea­sure.

You can book it for your own pri­vate cin­ema screen­ing and en­joy the use of an in­built cof­fee ma­chine, wine fridge, open gas fire and wifi en­abled pro­jec­tor con­nected to Net­flix and Ama­zon Prime Video.

This ex­cep­tional at­ten­tion to de­tail is even more ex­quis­ite within the res­i­dences them­selves, each one of which has been space planned and de­signed by the award-win­ning team of Day True in­te­rior ar­chi­tects based in Chelsea and Maida Vale.

It is the first time the team has come to North­ern Ire­land.

Day True own­ers Tony Rob­son and Hay­ley Tar­ring­ton ex­plain what brought them to North­ern Ire­land: “It all started with a mu­tual con­nec­tion and a chance meet­ing at our show­room in Lon­don.

“At Day True, we spend most of our time try­ing to give peo­ple a sense of space in a city where real es­tate is reach­ing ever more astro­nom­i­cal fees.

“Alan Fraser, the man be­hind FX saw our work and thought we would be able to use our ex­per­tise to add some­thing very unique and dif­fer­ent to this project.”

The team has con­sid­ered ev­ery de­tail.

Im­me­di­ately ap­par­ent on en­ter­ing these high end homes is the light and airi­ness of the liv­ing spa­ces, per­fectly framed with a matt grey Rot­punkt kitchen, and a her­ring­bone en­gi­neered floor.

Pocket doors open into wall cav­i­ties rather than into liv­ing spa­ces while vast floor to ceil­ing win­dows en­hance the feel­ing of space.

An in­built hot water tap keeps

the kitchen ap­pli­ance-free while a top of the range Siemens oven that also steam cooks and mi­crowaves max­imises cup­board space. An in­duc­tion hob boils water in half the time of a nor­mal hob.

The bed­room is sim­ple, but lux­u­ri­ous, with a rich vel­vet rug set into the her­ring­bone floor and framed with a brass trim.

The bath­rooms have an un­der­stated cool with a five star ho­tel in­spired en suite fea­tur­ing high end ma­te­ri­als like Co­rian and ex­clu­sive brands like Hans­grohe’s Axor range and Rexa, an Ital­ian range that is de­signed and man­u­fac­tured from sus­tain­able ma­te­ri­als deep in the Ital­ian moun­tains.

Ev­ery last de­tail from the taps to the light switches has been care­fully con­sid­ered by the Day True team.

Tony Rob­son added: “We want peo­ple to feel good when they en­ter an FX res­i­dence. We want their home to work for their life­style. We want ev­ery­thing they touch to re­mind them they are liv­ing some­where spe­cial.”

Clever de­sign and modern tech­nol­ogy makes these one bed res­i­dences work in ev­ery sense.

A hand­held Dyson V8 Ab­so­lute is in­te­grated into the be­spoke, fully fit­ted Gessi wal­nut bed­room wardrobe.

Multi room wiring is stan­dard and you also have the op­tion to con­trol your heat­ing from your smart phone.

Si­t­u­ated in the heart of the city, the first of these su­pe­rior homes will be avail­able by next April.
