Situated on the north bank of the River Thames, 135 Grosvenor Road SW1 enjoys a prime London location, a landmark residential dwelling in one of the most sought after areas of of the capital.
We were given the exciting opportunity to take on this substantial residential project at concept stage. We obtained planning consent for eight luxurious private apartments, also carefully designed to be used as a single luxurious residence.
The 24,000 square foot luxury dwelling was designed to incorporate 12 private car parking spaces in a state-of-the-art automated car stacker system. As a single luxury dwelling, the accommodation includes eight reception/lounge and dining areas, kitchen, 21 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, library, study, office, cinema, a 5,000 bottle wine cellar, luxury boot room, spa, gym and wellness floor. A further 1,500 square foot luxury roof terrace, including conservatory, relaxed seating, day beds, rainwater showers and jacuzzi, will allow alfresco dining with stunning views of the city and river.
Set back from Grosvenor Road, the building’s main entry is an impressive one and a half storey double volume. The building is clad in the elegant and classical ‘Portland Stone’ with recessed feature joints and blue grey glazed roman brick to the base of the building. High performance double-glazed recessed tinted windows and sliding doors in an aluminium/wood frame ensure the highest level of acoustic soundproofing. Zinc finish insulated panels will be used to corner window openings and to clad the penthouse facade, with perimeter shading also in zinc finish panels.
State of the art external LED lights are to be integrated in the driveway, planted areas, roof terrace, balconies and around the building to enhance the property further and create a visual ‘landmark’, adding to the already spectacular London nightscape. Completion Date Autumn 2014.
