Interior architecture firm Amos and Amos has recently completed a penthouse apartment at 21 Wapping Lane, a new 18-storey building in East London. Amos and Amos re-planned the layout of the 241 sqm penthouse to create a clear space throughout the apartment: the result is a contemporary luxe interior that balances immaculate detailing and bespoke design with a carefully selected material palette evoking a strong metropolitan feel.
The living area is a large sweeping space: a true entertainment environment. The semi professional kitchen incorporates stainless steel, a chef’s tap, Gaggenau appliances and cooker hood, and a Falcon range cooker. Basaltina stone worktops sit over lacquered cabinets with oak veneered interiors, whilst the breakfast bar sets itself apart with a timber, butcher’s block style surface offering casual eating with views across the city.
The dining area is located directly adjacent to the kitchen, making it perfect for hosting and entertaining guests. A new sculptural spiral stair was designed to access the roof terrace, through a glass sided sunroom on the 19th floor. The roof terrace offers uninterrupted 360 degree views across the capital.
The main living space is divided into three specific areas. Firstly a workspace set in front of floor to ceiling glazing offering views to the Shard and Tower Bridge. Next to the workspace is a comfortable seating area with two armchairs, designed for reading and relaxing by a bespoke designed walnut LP unit.
The main entertainment space sits under a coffered ceiling, and includes a vast L shaped sofa, armchairs, and bespoke media unit with integrated concealed drinks cabinet and gilded metal shelving. A floor to ceiling integrated mirror reflects the cityscape into the space, and Tom Dixon pendants hang above a mid century inspired sofa with integrated smoked oak side tables.
A completely open space was created, featuring a walk through wardrobe behind the master bed, and an open bathroom incorporating two countertop basins, minimalist disc operated taps, and a dramatic freestanding cast resin bath and tap with views stretching to Canary Wharf. A separate WC links to the bathroom, both of which are set against marble tiled floors and walls. The master bedroom has direct terrace access with far reaching views.
The second bedroom does not feel in the slightest way secondary, featuring a private terrace, luxurious ensuite with a large shower and bath and walk-through wardrobe. The third bedroom sits between the two, and is a perfect guest bedroom with built in wardrobes and terrace access.
