From the basement pool and spa, past a multi-level garden by Chelsea gold medallist Chris Beardshaw, all the way up to the rooftop bedroom with City skyline views, it’s the epitome of high-end contemporary residential design.
The local council’s demand for a brick façade and continuity have resulted in a very stealthy dwelling at street level. Three materials – stone, oak and bronze – form the core of the house with the Bolzano-sourced stone giving the interiors a carved, cave-like quality (albeit one with meticulously precise geometry).
Inspired by the soft structuring of the interior materials selected by Silvestrin, the W* fashion team laid out a luxe spread of leather trench coats, while the interiors team delivered light and conceptual glass tables from Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka and smooth ceramics from a collaboration between 1882 Ltd and Russell Pinch to the classic yet contemporary mix.
Biscuit-coloured stone surfaces feature in each room – lining corridors, curving around the stairwell and tinting the turquoise water within the basement pool – bringing a powerful and continuous calming aesthetic to the whole of the house. The stone, laid by Italian artisans without using grout, has a pleasing visual echo of the tower of Christ Church Hampstead, which is visible from the upper terraces.
