Project Details—

Our clients brief was to create eleven luxury new-build apartments, replacing the existing low quality semi-industrial and vacant building.  The proposals include a mix of studio, one, two and three bedrooms, including two impressive penthouse units with private terraces. Many of the units include private balconies with open outlooks. The elevational treatment has strong verticality to the design and fenestration, allowing it to sit sympathetically beside the Georgian townhouses directly opposite. The subtle and tasteful mix of stone banding and brick create a contemporary yet appropriate palette of quality well detailed materials. Fine framed windows and frameless glass balustrades add to the elegance and quality of this development. 

Architect’s insight—

Our designs for the scheme strive to create a development that pays reference to the surrounding buildings' characteristics, whilst providing a positive contemporary contrast in the creation of a building of its time.  Gayfield is very much reflective of our design ethos to create high quality design-led developments.  This approach has been applied throughout the architectural design process both aesthetics and interiors – and is reinforced by the superior materials specified, subtle detailing, and contemporary layout of the apartments.
