Bespoke Design: Contemporary Luxury
Bespoke design has become the fundamental ingredient in the creation of the finest luxury interiors for contemporary living. This residence is a perfect example of carefully considered and uncompromising luxurious bespoke design. For our design inspiration today, we look to London’s ultra-exclusive One Hyde Park development in Knightsbridge. This 4,500 square foot residence has been completed by the award-winning luxury interior design firm Casa Forma to serve as a comfortable holiday home for an international family.
Bespoke Design is the last word in contemporary luxury!
Casa Forma’s designs were inspired by and are synergistic with the buildings Modernist and Art Deco-inspired architecture. Their primary focus was on practicality and ease of function, resulting in a smart and sophisticated contemporary design. At the same time, the design team focused on creating a timeless style and a unique living experience with the incorporation of the best of luxury bespoke design. This isn’t just any apartment after all. These are among the most expensive apartments in the world, and it was very necessary to create ultra-special interiors that reflect that. The interiors realized here are a product of the design team being enabled to fully develop each detail with ultimate precision using the finest materials, finishes, and processes to their exacting bespoke standards.
Upon entering the home, one steps into a long central corridor that extends through the apartment, connecting to the main living area at the far end. This corridor is the primary passage route from which all the other rooms flow. Casa Forma developed two types of bespoke designed paneling features to highlight this main hall. On one side, high-gloss sycamore panels with an Ombre color gradient add light and subtlety. On the opposite, an Art Deco-inspired map of Hyde Park’s pathways simplified into geometric shapes, creates an abstract design that serves as the focus. The map combines metalized panels with multi-tone resin fill and bronze trims connected by bronzed mirror panels with triple bevel edges.
The interior design in the main living area focuses on maximizing the incredible open views over Hyde Park. Floor-to-ceiling, triple-glazed glass windows and doors make up the three outer walls. The double-volume living room divides into two seating areas with the furniture layout arranged to best take in the light and view. The designers completed the interior wall with sliding panels made of dyed goat skin tiles set in rosewood interspaced with mirrored panels with Deco-style beveled glass relief.
The entertainment system tucks away out of view behind the sliding wall panels. A novel turntable resides in a unique niche concealed by a commissioned eglomise painting. A deluxe bar with LED lighting details also hides behind the panels. The rooms mood and use can change completely by adjusting the panels.
The formal dining room’s luxurious design includes a feature wall created with silver and gold leaf panels. The opposite wall features bronze and glass cabinetry framed with a back-lit mosaic of tortoise shell and tiger eye. How is that for your original bespoke design details? Above the table, a grouping of blown glass lighting pendants provides the room with a warm amber glow. You can imagine just how extraordinary this must look with the lights low for dinner.
The spacious contemporary kitchen is Baulthaup designed and equipped with Gaggenau appliances.
One of the original four bedrooms now serves as a sexy study that doubles as a games room. The room has a sleek, contemporary finish. Casa Forma bespoke designed the magnificent units lining the walls which were then made by skilled craftsmen in Italy. The designers used stained solid Indian Rosewood with a piano high-gloss finish complete with bronze trim. The room can still act as a guestroom for the kidskin leather sofa converts into a bed.
The designers reconfigured the en-suite bathroom linked to the study to include a Swedish dry sauna. This detail proved to be the biggest challenge of the entire project. The smartly designed building has the latest heat and moisture detectors which presented a problem. Casa Forma ultimately perfected the design, and the small yet complex feature is a hugely successful addition.
The home’s guest powder room features a unique bespoke created wall finish. Silver and gold leaf gesso, treated with an acid wash to render a distressed look covers the walls creating depth and texture.
Casa Forma completed the bedrooms with designs that embrace both style and elegance to provide the ultimate in comfort. The bespoke designed wall units continue in here with their rich high gloss finish and Art Deco-inspired shapes. Luxurious hand painted silk covers the walls accented with beveled glass finished mirror panels. The neutral color palette used throughout the rest of the home continues in the bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own spacious en-suite marble bathroom.
Custom rugs, sumptuous fabrics, expert lighting, bespoke furnishings and a state-of-the-art home automation system complete the home with a smart, absolutely original luxurious design. Such attention to detail is typical for a residence within One Hyde Park. As residents, the owners also have access to the development’s multiple world-class high-end facilities.
Designed by Lord Rogers, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect, One Hyde Park is the first Residences at Mandarin Oriental in Europe. When originally built, the press proclaimed that it was one of London’s most prestigious residential addresses. With striking design, exemplary service, luxurious facilities, and impenetrable security ensuring privacy, the homes within One Hyde Park tend to be the preference of a certain discerning international high-net-worth audience.
