This cool, contemporary apartment in Belgravia is served by three outside areas – an east terrace, west terrace and upper terrace. The design of all three links the terraces and complements the style of the interior while each retains an individual character.
The east terrace is the central point of the apartment and is viewed immediately on entering the home. It is a suitably eye-catching space where dramatic planters with sizeable trees and multi-stems under planted with pretty seasonal plants, alongside an array of reclaimed pots, complement the three tone, cubic style marble tiling – it’s a delightful melange of textures and tone. Cascading Muehlenbeckia planting on the walls and between the steps softens the look and the overall effect is contemporary but at the same time inviting.
The upper terrace has a glass balustrade with the glass-coved lift shaft just off centre. Decking keeps the look clean and uncluttered while planters, pots and verdant boundary planting add a more relaxed roof-top vibe. It is perfect for entertaining and eating al fresco with a smart barbeque area.
The narrow terrace located off the kitchen is used as a more informal seating area. The low-level planting uses shade-tolerant plants while the boundary planting and green wall provide a lush backdrop without encroaching on the tight space.
