Initially built in 1893, this Victorian-style building has been reimagined to house Elie Saab Residences’ collection of 15 modern and sophisticated apartments. The double-height pilasters, Corinthian capitals, and an ornamented cornice on the exterior are reminiscent of London’s past, and designers have blended the classical with the modern to bring the building into the 21st century.
A leading name in fashion, Elie Saab’s designs are refined and timeless and, having chosen the finishes and materials himself, these residences mark his first move into the interior design world. The apartments boast unusually large floorplans by London’s standards, with elegant finishes and a calm atmosphere thanks to the terraces and open views of London’s greenery.
Flanking some of the capital’s most luxurious neighborhoods, the location offers something for everyone: Classic British pubs and Michelin-starred restaurants sit side-by-side, and numerous boutiques and cultural destinations provide a myriad of ways to spend an afternoon.
Inside, the kitchen is the perfect space to host friends, with bespoke fitted cabinets, quartz worktops, and high-end appliances. Elsewhere, marble and warm woods create a feeling of opulence and understated luxury. The open-plan living areas make the residences feel bright and spacious, and allow for the beautiful views of Hyde Park to be seen from almost every angle.
