Our previous design projects in Knightsbridge
Our team of Knightsbridge interior designers worked their magic on a penthouse close to Harrods in the exclusive neighbourhood. The once bland and uninspiring flat was transformed into a chic and unique urban dwelling with custom wall murals, contemporary fittings and modern furniture. The previous developer had ripped out all of its original features, so we designed a large modern fireplace and AV centre for the living room giving the space focus and edge. Our Knightsbridge interior designers and architects added some innovative finishing touches including textured wallpaper, hidden wine fridges and wireless music systems. These features combine to make this penthouse unforgettable.
Architecture and famous listed buildings in Knightsbridge
Knightsbridge is a hub of luxury commerce, but it is also home to residential buildings owned by some of the wealthiest people in the world. Knightsbridge interior designers have a virtual playground at their feet with so much potential for showcasing their creativity and innovation. The district is small but packed with opulent Victorian terraces sharing space with quintessential British leafy squares which house 275 listed buildings. Running south of Hyde Park, it is located close to the most famous building in London, Buckingham Palace. The palace, an iconic landmark in the UK and recognised throughout the world, has been the main residence of British monarchs since 1837. The palace is actually the work of several architects, evolving from the early 18th century to the early twentieth century.
Is Knightsbridge close to museums and exhibitions?
Knightsbridge is located at the centre of London’s rich and varied cultural life. Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens often host exhibitions, concerts and performances. The Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens is one of the UK’s most popular contemporary art venues. There are also a number of sites commemorating the reign of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. For example, the Albert Hall is one of England’s most beloved buildings and famous for holding the annual Proms concerts each summer. Nearby, the Victoria and Albert Museum is the world’s largest permanent exhibition of decorative arts and design, spanning 5,000 years of international art. The Science Museum and Natural History Museum are also located in the vicinity. If you are interested in contemporary performances, St James Theatre is one of the best new venues in the city and has a popular brasserie where you can often spot celebrities enjoying a post-show meal.
Restaurants, nightlife and things to do in Knightsbridge
Knightsbridge is one of the world’s most famous shopping addresses and it is home to two of the most celebrated department stores in the UK: Harrods and Harvey Nichols. If all the shopping makes you hungry, take a break at the fabulous Art Deco steakhouse Hawksmoor, which is conveniently located between the two iconic stores. Knightsbridge isn’t just home to huge department stores, it also has big name designers such as Dior and Burberry lining the streets alongside ultra-exclusive boutiques. Lovers of fine art head to the world’s leading art business and auction house, Christie’s, which has a salesroom on Old Brompton Road. There is an array of premium restaurants in the area with Rivea, Mr Chow and Zuma standing out among the competition, all with interiors designed by the best Knightsbridge interior designers. The area is also renowned for its top-end bars including Blue Bar and Buddha Bar. The wealthiest visitors stay at Bulgari’s opulent five-star hotel.
Why do you want to live in Knightsbridge? Which famous residents live there?
Knightsbridge is the most sought after destination for ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNWI). The property market attracts billionaires from overseas who invest in new super-prime apartment buildings, such as One Hyde Park. The copper tycoon Vladimir Kim, the wealthiest man in Kazakhstan, owns one of these apartments and no doubt makes use of local Knightsbridge interior designers’ services. It also benefits from a high concentration of excellent pre-prep and prep schools in and around the area like the excellent co-educational Knightsbridge School. Despite its notoriety as an exclusive commercial hub, the area is near to several parks including Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. It’s also close to the Thames where you can stroll Chelsea Embankment Gardens.
