A distinguished two-bedroom apartment in Kentish Town masterminded by its designer owner. This considered home epitomises light-filled, loft-style living.

Set in a former factory on handsome Highgate Road, The Maple building pairs a striking redbrick exterior with marble floors and concierge services. On the first floor, an eye-catching apartment carefully choreographed by fashion designer Jason Basmajian captures the imagination.

Illuminated by 10 steel-framed windows, the open-plan kitchen and reception room is naturally zoned by its L-shaped form. A stone-topped island-cum-breakfast bar, crowned with an industrial light feature, delineates the space between cooking and dining areas.

In the kitchen, minimalistic cabinetry pairs with integrated Miele appliances and a full-height marble backsplash. Hardwood flooring flows into the dining space where a waxed steel table by architect Massimiliano Fuksas is accented by an abstract Fredrikson Stallard bowl. A distinctive Charles Kalpakian wall unit draws playful diagonal lines, producing an angular aesthetic.

Arranged around a steel and glass coffee table, the living area draws together thoughtfully selected furnishings including an iconic teak lounge chair by architect Pierre Jeanneret. Around the corner, a media area benefits from a rosewood cabinet, vintage Falcon chairs and photography by Mark Ruwedel.
A sense of serenity and sophistication has been created within the calming principal bedroom suite. This generous space enjoys two south-facing windows, Italian 1940s chairs upholstered in red mohair and an en suite with a walk-in rainfall shower finished in oversized stone tiles.

An additional bedroom combines burgundy hues, integrated storage and a daybed finished in Kvadrat velvet. Complete with an oak desk designed by artist Teresa Hastings, this flexible space could also be used as an office. A stylish family bathroom features a floating cabinet vanity and bathtub with an integrated shower.
