Project: The Floral Court Collection
The Floral Court Collection transforms a historic building, which in its heyday was the Westminster Fire Office, into 31 homes. The architects, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), seamlessly blended a heritage building with new build, creating homes with a unique character and individual feel.
Nestled on the top floor of The Floral Court Collection, a boutique residential development in Covent Garden by Capco, this three-bedroom penthouse, furnished by Studio Ashby. The home is spread across nearly 5,000 square feet making it the largest penthouse to come to market in Covent Garden.
The reception area is bright and spacious with a bespoke central sofa positioned around a live edge organic elm coffee table and atop a handmade rug inspired by Abstract Impressionist art. There is also a blue Etcetera lounge chair designed in the 1970s by Jan Ekselius and recently brought back into production. Overlooking the reception room is a canvas by London-based artist, Christabel Forbes.
The Penthouse’s dining room and cocktail lounge offers views down towards Floral Street. Inside a spectacular dining table acts as a superb focal point.
Created in collaboration with florist, Mary Lennox, it pays homage to Covent Garden’s history as a flower market. Underneath a glass surface lay intricately selected dried flowers. This ties in with the overall green, rust, red and golden palette of the room. Above the dining table sits an organic light canopy with twisted metal florals and foliage, designed in collaboration with British makers Cox London.
The Penthouse boasts four private terraces. The master bathroom terrace provides an irresistible view of the iconic London Eye.
