Leinster Square is a Grade II architectural gem in London in which numbers 7-12 have been completely renovated by Alchemi Group and their design arm, Studio L, London, to create the ultimate in sophisticated London living. Together with architects TateHindle, Alchemi/Studio L have sympathetically restored these quintessential Notting Hill terraces to refreshed glory, offering a collection of apartments and townhouses finished to the highest standards.
As part of the premium specifications for the new three-bedroom apartments and townhouses, the design team at Studio L, led by Creative Director and Founder, Laura Marino, chose a series of Devon&Devon pieces to ensure both the beauty and quality of the bathroom furnishings. From spacious en-suites to stylish shower rooms, these bathrooms are distinguished by the particular refinement of the Devon&Devon brand.
To set the tone and remain in keeping with period-sensitive restoration of the architecture, the Devon&Devon designs that have been chosen include impressive freestanding tubs and statement vanity units and consoles, completed by the finest brassware and accessories.
The design concept is a “modern take on the Victorian era” inspired both by the original buildings and the lively neighbourhood itself, with its upscale bohemian vibe and charming boutiques. Laura Marino explains, “Before I began specifying the development, I had an instinct on how I wanted it to look and feel because I live in the area and am very attached to it. I felt there was no need to play it too safe or bland in the heart of such a creative and vibrant neighborhood, especially as the Victorians themselves were keen on the kind of character, flavour and colour we wanted to bring to this development.
I love stone and craftsmanship in materials - Laura adds - I wanted a look that was timelessly classic. Something that wouldn’t date because it’s overly trendy or only of the moment. Also, I like to be a bit more daring with bathrooms because they’re like little jewel boxes and should be allowed to have personality in their own right without being garish.”
"Accordingly, the luxurious en-suite master bathrooms feature signature Devon&Devon creations such as the Admiral bath, the Regent double vanity and the Wide Blues console or a touch of Art Deco style in the form of the Jetset vanity and best-selling Celine bath".
Numbers 7-12 consist of five townhouse arrangements over lower ground, ground and first floor levels. With floor to ceiling heights of 3.5 metres on the first floors, the homes have been completely restored to their original beauty, with the town houses featuring windows with French shutters and enjoying multiple private terraces. The six lateral apartments are situated on floors 2-4 and are accessed via a private concierge area which services all the homes.
