The penthouse apartment atop the former Harrods depository was one of a number of homes owned by my clients and they were only in London during the summer. This enabled me to design a space that would genuinely be used and not just admired through the window of a centrally heated room.
Typical of many projects almost everything was bespoke and we designed and fabricated the table and bench. The curved bench is inviting and provides storage, and at the touch of a button the gas powered flambeau provides light as well as heat.
