London’s new luxury address – designed by Tom Dixon
Whilst British designer Tom Dixon is renowned for his lighting and furniture collections, his more recent business – Design Research Studio – has been quietly making waves. It specialises in high concept interiors, large scale installations and architectural design and has worked on projects such as the Mondrian London, Jamie Oliver’s Barbecoa restaurant and the Metropolitan Wharf. This studio is now behind a new flagship residential project in London.
Greenwich Peninsula has being earmarked as London’s future luxury enclave and in a unique decision, just one developer, Knight Dragon, is in charge of building the entire 200 acre Peninsula. Whilst the project won’t be completed for another 25 years, the No. 2 at Upper Riverside apartment building will be one of the first projects to reach completion. Its 35 ‘limited-edition’ apartments are already for sale and are expected to be ready for occupancy in 2018.
Designed by SOM architects (Skidmore Owings & Merrill) and Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio, these apartments comprise a series of double-height lofts, studios and three penthouses measuring a huge 2,485 square feet excluding terrace areas. Within each of these spaces will be a bespoke Tom Dixon kitchen with custom-designed enamel splash-backs and copper kitchen cabinetry. However, there is also a reference to historic London, with the bathroom tiles referencing traditional glazed London brick.
