“Our aim was to create a warm, comfortable home whilst still being luxurious, contemporary and organic,” says Griem. “As the penthouse is a new-build on top of a refurbished Edwardian building, the approach to the interior was of particular significance to me. I knew it had to be treated differently in order not to undermine the character of the older parts of the building.”, he added.

The windows are a key element that contributes to framing the vistas with breathtaking effect.

“I am particularly excited about the bathtub in the master ensuite.  It’s a large, white freestanding tub that sits in front of a magnificent window so that when you sit in it, you’re essentially a part of the cityscape. It weighs 300 kilograms and it took six mento carry it up seven floors,” adds Griem.

The use of wood flooring in the living room is a particular feature that added texture, spontaneity and color to the space.

“As this is a new building with a very modern look, they were able to introduce a window the entire width of the room. If you do not have a window in your bathroom you can install a piece of glass on to the wall sandwiching and displaying an image to create an amazing feature in your bathroom at home,” says Griem.
