gayfield square

The design brief was for the creation of eleven luxurious new-build apartments, replacing an existing low-quality semi-industrial structure and vacant building. This development boasts a diverse range of studio, one, two, and three-bedroom units, including two stunning penthouse residences featuring private terraces. Many of the apartments feature private balconies offering expansive views of the surroundings.

The architectural treatment of the elevations exhibits a pronounced verticality, harmonising with the adjacent Georgian townhouses while establishing a distinct contemporary presence. A careful juxtaposition of stone banding and brickwork forms a sophisticated palette of meticulously detailed materials, lending a timeless elegance to the facade.

The meticulous attention to detail is evident in the design, with fine-framed windows and frameless glass balustrades contributing to the development’s sense of refinement and quality craftsmanship. In homage to the surrounding architectural vernacular, the design references the characteristics of neighbouring buildings while introducing a refreshing contemporary contrast, emblematic of its era. This design philosophy permeates both the exterior aesthetics and interior spaces, characterised by superior materials, subtle detailing, and a modern layout that reflects the evolving needs of contemporary living.

By seamlessly integrating contextual references with innovative design elements, this development stands as a testament to the enduring principles of architectural excellence and thoughtful urban regeneration.
