An outstanding interior designed apartment in The Laboratory, a fine example of an Art Deco building which dates back to 1930's forming part of the New River Head, which was the headquarters of the Metropolitan Water Board.
Designed by the architect John Murray Easton who, in 1955 was awarded the Royal gold medal for his contribution to architecture by the Royal Institute of British Architects on behalf of the British monarch, the building is somewhat iconic as well as one of the most recognised in the area.
It incorporates many of the distinguished qualities associates with Art Deco such as vertical clean lines, large windows, bold geometric forms, classical elements and rich materials.
Art Deco is associated with glamour, luxury and fine craftsmanship, in fact nothing about Art Deco was cheap, it was a celebration of modernity and progress.
The Lab building was converted into smart residential homes in the late 1990's and we are launching one of the most impressive duplex apartments in the building.
Unique in every way the current owners have meticulously refurbished the apartment incorporating many of the rich and bold forms associated with the era, with bespoke American walnut and Wenge cabinetry, Camaro and Amtico flooring as well as brass, chrome, steel and glass balustrades.
The apartment offers flexible as well as extremely versatile accommodation with a huge kitchen/dining/living room, master bedroom with ensuite shower room, second double bedroom and guest bathroom. Overlooking the kitchen/dining/living area there is an extremely elegant living room which could easily convert to a third bedroom or otherwise a superb entertaining space.
The apartment also boast a patio as well as a large private garden, an allocate parking space and benefits from a day porter as well as access to the rose gardens.
Located on the corner of Rosebery Avenue and Arlington Way it is conveniently positioned for access to the City, West End, Islington and Clerkenwell.
