KEY FEATURES Brand new apartment Open plan living Traditional & contemporary features Impressive roof terrace Gaggenau Appliances Lift access directly into the apartment Porter available A three-bedroom lateral penthouse occupies the fourth and fifth floors of Great Queen Street. A place to both enjoy and escape central city living, the Pippin features wide open interior living spaces and two large terraces. The lower foot is reserved for relaxing and entertaining in the original 19th century interiors. Historic details have been preserved and highlighted with a sensitive understanding of the building’s past and its future. Above, a striking roof extension mirrors the materials of the modern parts of the rest of the house, while three ensuite bedrooms enjoy aerial views across the city. ARCHITECTURE & INTERIOR DESIGN Architecture and interior design have been conceived simultaneously in a symbiotic partnership between the architect and interior designers Rigby & Rigby. Historic sash windows are now integrated into internal walls, allowing natural light to flow through the open lines of the apartments. Wooden herringbone floors, fireplaces and detailed cornicing hint at stories of an elegant past, gradually transitioning into a tale of contemporary life: wooden plank flooring, matte textures in stone, wood and tile, and the fully-glazed walls of the bold modern extension. Complementing these features beautifully is a collection of hand-selected furniture that mirrors the architectural detail. Modernist shapes and tones work with the neutral palette, while fabrics and furnishings have been chosen to highlight the textures of the building’s palette. These bespoke finishes and beautifully crafted details bring a sense of harmony to the design, a finely crafted link between then and now, exterior and interior, concept and realisation. LOCATION Covent Garden today has lost none of the energy that has defined it over the centuries. Although the original market has been moved, vendors, performers and restaurants still pepper the streets, spilling from the elegant portico to create a thoroughly contemporary take on the area’s past. Here, pop-ups rub shoulders with the classics, market stalls stand beside designer names, and the finest theatre competes with exceptional street performers. The Royal Opera House is one of a string of world-class theatres, while culinary creativity populates the surrounding streets in the kitchens of Petersham Nurseries, the Hawksmoor, Barrafina and more.
