A nice follow-up to a recent Daily Dose:
Next to the Thames in Battersea, overlooking London, the Montevetro is a sleek 17 story building designed in the 1990s by Richard Rogers. 3s Architecture was recently hired to overlook a renovation which included merging 2 side-by-side flats purchased by their client.
"Major areas have been redesigned and subdivided to accommodate six bedrooms and four bath suites. We retained the existing prefab bathroom cubicles but combined some and refitted them with new sanitaryware and finishes of limestone and walnut timber for a warmer and more stylish appearance. A striking feature wall curves through the main hallway which connects the two old flats and provides access to the new kitchen and dining area."
Complimenting the interior are some refined pieces of 20th Century modernist design, including a Vico Magistretti Atollo Lamp, a Florence Knoll marble top credenza, a vintage Danish teak credenza, a Saarinen-style side table, and an impressive pair of Poul Kjaerholm PK 20 leather lounge chairs.
