Ransome’s Dock – West Apartment by Minacciolo & CLPD
“Occupying Victoria Beckham’s former design studio and two floors below Toni Mascolo’s (one half of hair dressing impresarios Toni & Guy) London residence, are two of the finest luxury apartments to hit Battersea’s property market this year.
Delivered by bespoke developers CLPD, the three-bedroom East and West apartments are located on the first floor of an architecturally impressive former industrial warehouse in Ransome’s Dock.
In the shadow of Norman Foster’s iconic architectural practice and adjacent to Vivienne Westwood’s fashion house, the two apartments are the latest addition to this exclusive enclave synonymous with the capital’s glitterati. To cement the Dock’s extravagant credentials, a natural spring in the warehouse basement even provides a bespoke source of water to the ground floor.
Extending to almost 2,000 sq ft each and renovated to the highest specification with premium materials, CLPD has harnessed an exquisite combination of the industrial and organic to execute a sumptuous yet elegant finish.
Resonant with an understated, masculine feel, the interiors of the living rooms are rich in the building’s industrial history. Polished concrete floors and contemporary wooden panelling in the vast living areas provide a chic framework against which London’s urban lifestyles are destined to unfold. For sale with the furniture in situ, purchasers will enjoy the finest pieces from Minacciolo, Vitra and Carl Hansen.
Minacciolo, Italian design furniture company appreciated for its excellence on an international level, has supplied the top of the range among its kitchens with its Natural Skin collection. This line, especially customised to adapt to the absolute excellence of the apartments, represents a new way to perceive the house environments, being able to meet the exigencies of modern life simplifying it at the same time. Natural Skin is space revolution. Thanks to its monoliths sculptural purity, it divides and shares the different house ambiances without walls, by offering new and practical solutions. Functionality but also elegance, arose by a warm natural casing that envelopes the total black structure. For this occasion Natural Skin has been further enhanced with very cherished materials. Very thin sandstone papers have been applied on the HDF doors of the columns and as a superficial finish for the boiserie.
Attention to eco-sustainability by using Paperstone, a 100% recycling material, for all base units doors. The accessories that have been used represent the best you can find on the market.
Tiles, made from recycled materials by Mutina, imbue the bathrooms with a utilitarian chic while Vola taps, Corian baths and Murano glass basins nod towards a profound attention to detail rarely achieved in even a designer hotel.”
