1,200 sq ft – 120 m2
Boutique Pad, 2 Bed
This deluxe two-bedroom pied-a-terre with three bathrooms is situated in the exclusive Ebury Square development. A prime location in London, the development benefits from a 24-hour concierge service and features a state of the art gym. It was originally bought off plan in Singapore, by the client - a business professional, for £4M from property developer, Berkeley’s Group. To distinguish the interior from a typical show home appearance that had been designed originally for private Russian investors, the client enlisted Maurizio Pellizzoni to strip away the ostentatious scheme and create a more sophisticated but masculine look for an overall look that encapsulates subtle luxury.
A very modern apartment that features architectural pieces, Maurizio also used an abundance of elegantly luxurious materials throughout, from linen and fine leather fabrics from Ralph Lauren to Italian marble and stainless steel finishes. Maurizio wanted to create an interior scheme that had a slick appeal without it becoming overtly opulent, so he chose grey and black matt marble surfaces and removed the Herringbone flooring, replacing it with large, long floorboards to create a more contemporary feel. The flooring transcends throughout the open plan living and the two bedrooms using the same marble finish as the rest of the apartment for a beautifully streamlined look, complemented by natural and organic fabrics. Most of the pendant lighting was removed too, leaving only a feature/sculptural pendant light from the Italian Terzani above the dining table, as well as the wall panelling and wallpaper. The result was a very organic and neutral colour scheme, combined with a touch of red for continuity throughout, successfully integrated with beautiful signature artwork and gold finishes. This was to achieve a natural continuity of space from room to room. The kitchen was converted into an open plan and the wall originally installed in front of the island, which encased the space was removed. Every utility has been given careful planning attention so that each appliance seamlessly integrates into the space. Maurizio saw architectural details as integral to the scheme and personally sourced lighting, artwork and sculptures. The client wanted guests to feel just as at home in the guest suite as he did in his own master bedroom, so the same feel was maintained throughout both of the bedrooms. Maurizio achieved this brief by creating a similar ambiance with a slight variation in finishes. The master suite features a bespoke walk in wardrobe with custom veneers on the doors, meticulously crafted to house the client’s belongings.
“Throughout the entire project, where I had engaged Mr Pellizzoni's expertise and advice, I have found him to be resourceful, helpful, accommodating and ever willing to try out new ideas and concepts. Oftentimes he went beyond his normal responsibilities and job scope and was prepared to assist in the dressing up of the premises among many others."
