Bathrooms, whether for guests or the ensuite to a bedroom, are as meticulously conceived. As with the kitchen, and dressing areas, flamed granite benches and plinths ensure continuity in the way materials have been used to extend sight lines. Freestanding baths, combined with double vanities in most of the apartments, add to the level of luxury, as do the finely articulated showers and toilets, cleverly concealed behind smoked glass walls. And rather than the ubiquitous standard lighting adopted in most apartments, bespoke wall lights in both shower and toilet cubicles ensure partners aren’t woken in the middle of the night when bathrooms are required.

Walk-in Dressing

Likewise, walk-in dressing areas are not simply treated as dark cupboards, but as spaces that are not only pleasurable to dress in, but also places that provide ample storage, for everything from clothing and accessories to additional blankets or towels. Rather than a singular block of cupboards that are supposed to cater for everything, the dressing areas include flamed granite plinths that can be used to place baskets, trays or even hat boxes.

While gardens and outdoor spaces are integral to K.P.D.O.’s design, there are also large balconies. Those living at ground level, with their own courtyard-style gardens, also enjoy engaging with the elements. “People are leaving their gardens behind, but they still want to be connected to the outdoors, albeit without the maintenance,” says Hamilton.

Study Nooks and Coat Closets

K.P.D.O. thought carefully about how people would use their spaces. Like them, they wouldn’t like to open their front door and walk straight into a kitchen bench. What about a place for the keys, their mobile phones and a place to catch up on paper work rather than spreading these things across the kitchen bench or dining table? So a study nook was conceived near the front door. Likewise, why shouldn’t family or friends have a separate space to hang their coats or put their bags when they pass the threshold? “People shouldn’t have to attach coat hooks on walls after they’ve moved in. It’s something we think about well before that stage,” says Phelan.
