No. 1 Grosvenor Square unveils the first look into their residential units as team of expert architects and designers breathe life into the prestigious London address
Dubai: No. 1 Grosvenor Square, a building of distinction that is recognised as the world’s most desirable address, unveils the first look into their residential units located in the heart of Mayfair.
Perfectly situated on London’s grandest square, around the corner from Bond Street and Mount Street, No. 1 Grosvenor Square has been meticulously reconstructed, brick by brick, to restore its notable status for the 21st century. The sought-after development sets the benchmark for world-class design and unrivalled service for bespoke luxury living beyond compare, with 44 elegant residential units, overlooking the largest square in Mayfair.
Residents can look forward to entertaining guests in the sophisticated surroundings of the world-renowned design studio, Yabu Pushelberg’s interiors. Each residence facing west onto Grosvenor Square enjoys its own private lift and entrance foyer, unfolding into the expansive living spaces. Welcoming residents through the hallway is the blue vase, a rare piece from Hermés. At the heart of each home lies a grand drawing room that is classically designed with a combination of materials including velvet, silk and tweed matched with bold touches of bright orange and deep blue to link the space with the adjoining dining room, welcoming residents to interiors that flow seamlessly beyond. As a fitting homage to the “carnage pattern” of the 18th century, the imposing silk rug commands the center of the living room and is complemented by a marble and gold centre table and plush sofas to create a comfortable family environment. For large entertainments and extra seating space, window seats have been added making the space multi-functional. The finest fabrics from the UK, France and Italy have been used to create this sense of bespoke and warm interior.
Bringing bolder patterns to the interior, the dining room is designed to mesmerise guests and create a vibrant entertaining space. Elegant yet striking, the room stands out with vividly patterned hand-painted wall covering by Fromental, which are offset by an antique French art deco console table, discovered by a Parisian art connoisseur and an original Giacometti lamp, re-edited by Porta Romana. All residences at No.1 Grosvenor Square feature an expansive kitchen that has been carefully designed for the discerning chef with integrated state-of-the-art appliances, natural stone floors and marble worktops. Bespoke bathrooms are complete with underfloor heating, warm lighting and the highest quality fixtures and fittings, offset by the classic elegance of Italian marble and natural stone. An intimate and warm study room with natural light and views of Grosvenor Square is embellished with intricate items and photographs to serve the perfect at-home working experience.
With period features, including coffered high ceilings, cornicing and large windows, each bedroom is well-proportioned with luxurious finishing, including a bespoke walk-in wardrobe providing a tranquil retreat from city living. The master bedroom space is designed with a mix of natural wallpapers made from linen and from natural hand-dyed Raphia. The four-poster bed elevates the high ceilings, complemented by custom-designed side tables and contemporary bedside table lamps designed by Kelly Wearstler. Fluted wall lights sourced in Italy further nod to the Art Deco years coinciding with the period that the building was built in. The neighbouring bedrooms allow direct access to the terrace and provide the opportunity of having a private outdoor space in central Mayfair.
Through each home, the art in the hallways has been sourced from Cadogan gallery and the gold disk decorating the wall is made of brass, designed exclusively for the space.
Most homes located on the lower floors feature a private terrace, providing the perfect setting for outdoor dining, as well as views across London. On upper-floors, residences enjoy uninterrupted views facing east towards Bond Street and the world-famous landmarks of The Houses of Parliament and The Shard.
No. 1 Grosvenor Square sets a new benchmark for premium design with touches of bespoke luxury in all 44 elegant residential units and the amenities floor, housing a private gym, swimming pool, spa and cinema. The transformation of this historic property solidifies No. 1 Grosvenor Square as the world’s most desirable address with the finest design in the world.
