SAINT- MARTINS LOFTS
The transformation of London’s legendary Central Saint Martins art school in Charing Cross into a series of residences has been one of the capital’s most highly anticipated redevelopment projects. With the objective of honouring the heritage of the building, developers Aquila House Holdings Ltd and Noved Property Group commissioned 19 greek street to create an exceptional showcase apartment to promote the new interiors.
The opportunity to meet such a high-end brief, where style was paramount, was an invigorating challenge. Choosing pieces that would fuse our aesthetic and sustainable aims entailed a meticulous sifting through of ideas. Our ultimate solution was a selection of furnishings by designers who share our goals and place an emphasis on upcycled, socially conscious, and resourceful design. Richard Hutten, Dutch collective Vij5, 3D pioneer Dirk Vander Kooij, Chile’s gt2P, Tel Aviv’s Noam Dover and Michal Cederbaum, London-based Israeli Yoav Reches, Australia’s supercyclers, Nina Tolstrup of Studiomama, and Beirut’s Karen Chekerdjian are just some of those whose pieces we chose.
