Dollar Bay Penthouse In All It's Glory (posted 7th July 2017)
We've had the Dollar Bay Penthouse photography done and it looks AMAZING! From the gorgeous kitchen to the stylish master ensuite bathroom and down to the angular, geometric door handles. And let's not forget the luxurious spa!
Last month we talked about Interior Specification Design, referring specifically to the Penthouse apartments, the jewel in the crown of the striking Dollar Bay development in Canary Wharf, London. Suna Interior Design were selected to create the interior specification design for these two luxurious apartments. If you want to find out a bit more about what that involves, take a look at our Interior Specification Design, What Is It? blog.
In the meantime let's get down to important business, looking at the fantastic photography!
This stylish kitchen is eye-catchingly impressive, both aesthetically pleasing and an excellent use of the space.
The striking Cadre light by Kreon hangs above the Carrara marble dining table.
The L-shaped kitchen includes integrated Miele appliances and a glass display cabinet.
The rich, dark timber contrasts beautifully with the crisp white of the worktop, splashback and wall units.
This incredibly stylish master ensuite bathroom features the Agape Sen range of brassware, Carrara marble lining the back wall of the walk-in shower, smoked glass separating the shower from the toilet and bespoke wooden fins dividing the toilet from the Carrara marble vanity.
The slash sided Mastella Vanity freestanding bath.
The Agape Sen range has been used throughout the master ensuite bathroom. It is a configurable, modular, component range that includes taps, handheld shower, towel rail and shelf.
From the stylish Agape Sen brassware to the inbuilt LED lit mirror, this master ensuite bathroom maximises the space in which it is set, enabling the user to embrace the magnificent views.
Every bathroom has been considered, with integrated storage above the WC to the LED lit mirrors and impressive palette.
The master bedroom has a bespoke design for the wardrobe that has an integrated dressing table and open shelving slots that bisect the upper and lower doors. This is a unique design which enhances the interior space and reflects the linear qualities of the architecture.
The staircase is the link between all of the floors and we didn’t want to lose the opportunity to make sure it was a focal point. The same timber flooring that was specified for the entrance hall and open plan kitchen, dining and living room was used on the treads of the stairs to add warmth. We combined this with the charcoal wall colour to the lower half of the perimeter wall, this ran into a recessed hand rail manufactured in the same charcoal colour and with integrated lighting that lights the inside of the recess. This runs all the way around the wall in angled lengths, another homage to the architectural design. We designed the central balustrade to be sheet glass, to allow the design around the wall to be visible at all times and wash the light across the area.
The internal doors and handles were completely bespoke. We wanted to make sure that where possible the design nuances were achieved throughout the whole apartment to ensure that the interior had a cohesive and considered design. The internal doors are in the same timber finish as the kitchen and flooring but we added a routed angled design to the face and by changing the direction of the grain of the timber created a product that has a truly unique look. The faceted door handles in the satin black metal were selected to reflect the architecture of the building and work really well with the richness of the timber.
It was important that that the large wall that forms the backdrop to the spa area have an impact in this impressive space. As it is such a big wall area we added product which would break it up and add interest. We selected a tile product that was available in multiple sizes and surface finishes so that each one would catch the light differently. In addition, we added in recess strip lighting to the wall in specific areas so that the whole area would transform from day to night.
We'll leave you with this thought:
Have a great weekend,
