The beauty of vertical living in North Kensington. One of London’s most iconic Modernist apartment blocks.
Designed in the Brutalist style by Hungarian architect Ernő Goldfinger, Trellick Tower is an architectural icon of the 1970s; a Grade II listed building with a legacy as compelling as its aesthetic.
The building’s striking silhouette is divided into an apartment block and separate lift and service tower – a precursor to the efficiency of space found within the home. Head up to the 30th floor and descend concrete stairs into the accommodation on the 29th floor. Enter a spacious open-plan kitchen and reception room, offering an intruiging dialogue between exposed concrete walls and a reclaimed gymnasium floor.
The kitchen is a streamlined affair, with vibrant orange cabinetry and integrated appliances. At the other end of the room, an inviting L-shaped sofa. There’s direct access to a south-facing balcony – running the full length of the apartment – with soaring views across west London.
The carefully-considered body of materials continues in the bedrooms; tranquil environments with light entering through windows that overlook the cityscape below. Ample storage keeps the space clutter-free. A whitewashed bathroom with a fitted bath serves both these rooms.
