As part of a regeneration programme in the Kings Cross area of London, a prime piece of real estate came on the market in the form of the redevelopment of the St. Pancras Chambers by the Manhattan Loft Corporation into 67 units including three penthouses. It is one of these penthouses in the top three floors of the west tower of Grade 1 listed building, also home to the Eurostar, which caught the eye of City businessman Arran Patel who appointed Thomas Griem of TG-STUDIO to transform the standard space into an outstanding luxury residence.
The living/dining areas on the two lower floors are elegantly furnished spaces, perfect for enteraining at any level, all furnishings sourced from a bevy of top international designers including Poliform,Zanotti, Poitrona Frau, Knol, &B Italia l and Lema.Hessian wallcoverings were introduced to soften the sound that might otherwise echo in such a large space.
This staircase, designed by Thomas Griem, not only connects the lower and upper floors of this penthouse but cleverly provides library and storage along the way. Constructed entirely out of Oak and sturdy in appearance, the library offers a reading niche on its lower level and supports a minimal white & clear glass staircase that bridges to the upper level of the apartment hewn out of the roof space of the grade one listed St Pancras Hotel.
