norman rourke pryme’s Trafalgar One project wins two interior design awards
The interior designer behind the apartments at Trafalgar One on Trafalgar Square has won two categories at the International Design and Architecture Awards 2013.
Christopher Dezille and his team at Honky were instructed to create spaces to satisfy the lifestyle expectations of the most discerning buyers within the four lateral apartments and one duplex penthouse.
Developers LBS Properties and BMB developed the residences within the shell of the landmark Canadian Pacific Building, a Portland stone clad six-storey office building formerly occupied by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.
The International Design and Architecture Awards recognised Honky as winner of both the Residential £1.5-5 million and Residential £10 million plus categories.
Honky’s design approach for the apartments, which each occupy an entire floor, and the 3,765 square foot duplex on the fifth and sixth floors, was to offer ‘sophistication and luxury living with an understated effect’.
The interiors feature high coffered ceilings with recessed lighting, solid wood floors with under-floor heating, marble bathrooms, oak doors and acoustically designed windows.
norman rourke pryme acted as project managers, quantity surveyors and contract administrators. Director Myles Woodley said: ‘The client wanted to offer an open plan living solution throughout the main spaces and completely private bedrooms and bathrooms. The use of texture was important, as was framing the incredible views over Trafalgar Square and Admiralty Arch and towards Buckingham Palace.
‘Trafalgar One is the only residential address on the Square and the interior design needed to reflect that exclusivity. Honky exceeded the brief and I am delighted to hear of the team’s well deserved success at the awards.’
