This former office block in Kew Bridge is being converted into stylish, compact apartments for the newly launched Apt Living. MSMR’s design delivers 213 apartments over four floors, common parts and amenity spaces that bring light and space into the building, framing the outlook to the adjacent Gunnersbury Park.
The design incorporates ceiling heights that average three metres to create generous volumes, combined with an affordable, design-led approach and a palette of contemporary materials. From the apartment entrance, a seamless wall of custom-built joinery runs the length of the apartments, providing a neat hideaway for essential utilities.
On the lower levels, the building’s existing car park level is being redeveloped into a range of residents’ amenities including a gym, lounge, cinema room, meeting spaces, terrace garden and new car parking garage.
MSMR’s design keeps the raw concrete aesthetic by exposing the ceiling and roof beams. Timber joinery pieces separate internal spaces and colourful furniture and feature lighting add warmth.
