One Casson Square, one of Southbank Place’s tallest and most striking landmark buildings, has launched its first in-situ show apartment. The fully dressed unit has been designed by multi award-winning interior design studio, Elicyon. The show apartment is available for £4.25 million.
The three-bedroom show apartment is situated on the 31st floor and features wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows offering uninterrupted vistas of the magnificent London skyline, with each room designed to maximise direct views onto the River Thames, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral and City of London.
Taking inspiration from the South Bank’s industrial heritage, Elicyon has incorporated materials, textures and colours that speak to the local area’s history as a vibrant hub of natural craft and art. The apartment features a range of bespoke furniture pieces and specially commissioned artwork, such as a striking handmade geometric woven cord piece by UK artist Jo Elbourne, which is a nod to the weaving industry once prominent on this stretch of the River Thames. Other accessories include earthy coloured artisanal sculptures and natural materials such as agate rocks which provide grounding qualities.
The colour palette of ‘new neutrals’ has been chosen to create a warm and heartening ambience, combining soft ivory and sandy tones, autumnal burnt oranges and ochres, flashes of gold and calming dark teal. Rich woven and natural textures have been used throughout the apartment, alongside sumptuous velvet and eye-catching leather.
The furniture pieces are truly impactful, yet also comfortable and liveable. They include a striking marble and oak console table in the hallway by a Portuguese maker and a bespoke blonde timber dining table featuring bold golden spheres breaking up the solid legs and a white washed base, designed in-house by the Elicyon team. The living space also includes two statement curved sofas upholstered with beautiful light cream fabric and a dark base plinth; perfectly positioned for owners to sit and look out across some of the finest views of the city skyline. Completing the living space is a hand-knotted, Himalayan wool and bamboo silk rug in neutral tones. A retro, modular joinery piece in the study spans two walls and was designed in the 1960s. It accompanies a freestanding desk and tub chair to provide a beautiful space in which to work from home.
Charu Gandhi, Founder & Director of Elicyon comments, “When designing the show apartment for One Casson Square, we wanted to create a striking yet welcoming and comfortable space.
“Our design approach for the apartment is firmly anchored in its very special South Bank and Thames-side location and in the site’s rich heritage. We wanted to subtly reference the vibrancy, eclecticism and culture of the area and its history as the home of woollen cloth manufacturing, potting and weaving. This inspired our considered selection of textured artworks and bespoke furniture; our choice of dressings and fabrics featuring contemporary weaving techniques and the warm, neutral palette used throughout.’
