St Edmund’s Terrace

Location London NW8

Status Completed 2015


Description

From the landscaped drive leading to the main entrance, the library spaces, spa facilities, pocket gardens, and individual apartments to the detail of textured wallpapers and bespoke primrose-motif door handles, Squire and Partners’ architecture and interiors teams worked together to craft a high quality development that provides effortless elegant living for the residents of 50 St Edmund’s Terrace.
Rooted in the local context, the pavilion buildings nestle within the perimeter landscape of Primrose Hill and overlook Regent’s Park – one of London’s largest open spaces. Inspiration stemmed from the flow of spaces and pocket gardens in John Nash’s layout of Regent’s Park and the surrounding nineteenth century villas, as well as the coexistence of city dwellings with nature’s greenery.

 

The development is organised into three main pavilions overlooking the park, with landscaped garden mews providing visual relief between each building. These pocket gardens are visible through permeable glazed walkways which connect the apartment buildings and blur the distinction between the interior and exterior.
