New-build penthouse apartment by Berkeley Homes built on top of historic Edwardian building on the doorstep of London’s thriving financial district. Thomas Griem, director of TG-Studio, was commissioned by Berkley Homes to design the complete interior for a new-build penthouse in Aldgate, on the doorstep of London’s thriving financial district. “Our aim was to create a warm, comfortable home whilst still being luxurious, contemporary and organic” says Griem. “As the penthouse is a new-build on top of a refurbished Edwardian building, the approach to the interior was of particular significance to me. I knew it had to be treated differently in order not to undermine the character of the older parts of the building.”
Thomas’s idea for the interior design was based on the concept of
photography inspired by the views over the city. He has used the
architecture of the windows to frame these vistas with breathtaking
effect. This is particularly so in the sitting room where a 12 meter
wide window, leads onto an elegantly furnished balcony providing a
panoramic view over rooftops.
