Chelsea Barracks Apartment
Chelsea Barracks is a world-class super-prime development on what is arguably the most coveted 12.8 acres in the world comprising a rare collection of apartments, penthouses and townhouses. Lawson Robb were selected to design a five-bedroom, 6,050 sq ft apartment on Mulberry Square and to “transform a show residence into a home”.
Lawson Robb designed the apartment for a fictitious business-oriented couple with discerning taste. Their passion for the arts, travel, cuisine, fashion, finance and knowledge, is shown in this precise yet eclectic interior. The result is a layered, contemporary and sophisticated composition of finishes and textures, creating a tailored environment that acknowledges the heritage of the site, whilst embracing the future of London luxury living.
The design team named the residence the ‘Singer Suite’ after Norbert Singer, the famous Porsche engineer who became known for an all-encompassing approach to design during his time at Porsche in the early 70s. Lawson Robb embraced Singer’s belief that “everything is important” in each aspect of the apartment, meaning that every shape, form, bold colour accent and detail is integral to the overall holistic design of the space. Practicality is at the heart of the interior design team’s approach, incorporating the clean lines of carefully selected furniture to define the spaces.
The use of earthy tones, including petrol blue, burgundy and bronze, along with a bespoke woody scent throughout the residence, create a serene and calm environment. This colour palette combined with custom-built joinery, modern pendant lighting and abstract rugs, pays homage to British and European mid-century design and the retro-modern features of vintage Porsche cars. The formal dining room contains a bespoke rug beneath the hexagonal table, which is inlaid with bronze-tinted coloured glass to allow guests to view the rug as a piece of art while sitting at the table. Lawson Robb created an informal, multi-functional kitchen living space at the heart of the apartment for informal dinner parties, games nights or day to day lounging.
