Designer: Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio
Please note that the photographs and CGIs are illustrative, and do not necessarily depict the individual apartment being sold. Interior specifications, room sizes and views vary.
With interiors by the renowned designer Tom Dixon, direct views over the Thames and easy access to the Jubilee Line, this extraordinary three-bedroom duplex penthouse forms part of the exciting Greenwich Peninsula development. The Tom Dixon apartments are available as a strictly limited edition, and are being sold off-plan.
The penthouse measures 1,753 sq ft (approx.) internally. The lower level contains a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms, a bathroom and utility room. The upper level is arranged as a single spectacular living, dining and kitchen space, with expansive glazing that maximises the amount of natural light and frames views of the ever-changing river and skyline. This has steps up to a large private roof terrace.
As a deliberate counterpoint to the sterility of most new developments, Dixon has employed Art Deco motifs, and robust industrial materials including copper cabinetry inspired by traditional British crafts, enamel splashbacks by the people who make the London Underground signage, glazed bricks and dichroic glass. The apartments are available in a choice of two different colour palettes.
The Greenwich Peninsula is a new ‘island’ community in the loop of the Thames, with the O2 at its apex and Canary Wharf across the river. Private residences are set amid 48 acres of parkland and hidden gardens, surrounded on three sides by water. North Greenwich Underground station, the water taxi, the cable car and City Airport provide outstanding transport connections.
The Peninsula’s rich industrial history and geography is already a magnet for artists, filmmakers and photographers. Antony Gormley’s tallest sculpture, ‘Quantum Cloud’, towers over the Thames not far from Richard Wilson’s ‘A Slice of Reality’. Chef Stevie Parle’s new restaurant, Craft, offers coffee and cooking with a focus on locally grown produce. Gallerist Steve Lazarides has opened a print workshop and several artists’ studios. The aim is to create a genuine, lasting community with a shared love of design, art and food.
The Peninsula already contains a rich mix of modern architecture, with buildings by Richard Rogers, Foreign Office Architects and Marks Barfield. Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) have now designed a family of beautifully detailed apartment buildings that maximise the natural assets of the site, drawing in the river views, maximising privacy and harnessing natural light. Every apartment overlooks the water and has access to outside space. As well as private balconies, the properties have shared use of roof gardens, gyms, and a swimming pool in the sky with some of the most astonishing views in London.
