Project name: Trevor Square
Floor Area: Approximately 3000sqft
Project time taken: 1 year
This three-bedroom apartment in the heart of Knightsbridge was the 2nd project Taylor Howes completed for a private Pakistani developer. The client’s brief was to create a very elegant but calming space that would be suitable for a multi-cultural couple who are looking for a base in and amongst the hustle and bustle of this exclusive area.
The apartment comes in at around 3000sqft, with three bedrooms, two en suites, a guest toilet/shower room, kitchen and multi-functional living room with formal/informal seating, dining area and study nook. Whilst each room’s scheme has its own character, they all connect well due to their calm and elegant design. Taylor Howes refurbished the whole apartment and did the specifications for all of the finishes, including bathrooms and kitchens.
What was the creation / planning process?
We wanted to create something that made a lasting impression from the main entrance through to a TV wall with a difference. We brainstormed in the studio, met with the client to ensure that he understood our vision, and then collaborated with our specialist suppliers to create the final outcome.
How did the project go?
It exceeded all expectations! We create a stylish apartment in the heart of Knightsbridge that had both the wow-factor and most importantly a timelessness to it.
What was your favourite room or part of the project and why?
I love the TV wall because it is doubles up as an art installation.
Were there any issues or problems you encountered during the project?
The spatial planning in the living room was a challenge because there is a large column as you enter. We clad it and then created a desk/study area behind it – good design is all about turning a negative into a feature!
