Crafted by design masterminds Valerie and Felix von Bechtolsheim, exposed brickwork, a high, butterfly-vaulted ceiling, steel beam girder and real log burner are just some of the features that set this one-bedroom home in North Kensington apart from its more traditional neighbours.  

Enter a spacious open-plan reception room and kitchen, immaculately-laid with pale parquet floors and illuminated through sash windows and skylights. Integrated banquette seating affords a welcoming feel to the dining area, positioned next to the whitewashed culinary countertops. A mezzanine level has been installed as a cosy living space or additional sleeping nook, whilst working to accentuate the room’s voluminous proportions.  

Beyond, the double bedroom has been crafted with organic materials and calming tones. Mirroring the reception room, the double bed is set against a wall of exposed brickwork. Next door, its en suite shower room showcases a marble-clad shower brilliantly-lit through a skylight. Down the corridor, access a large decked roof terrace. A reclaimed shower is an innovative addition to keep cool during London’s summer months.
