Covent Garden has changed since its humble beginnings way back in the 1500s, it is the oldest square in London and Westminster Abbey’s original orchard garden. Over the centuries it has been a bustling produce market, the centre of theatre life, an area of ill repute, and home to the aristocracy. In fact, in the 17th century Covent Garden was London’s ultimate luxury residential address – in the 21st century it is again.
Floral Court is a welcome addition to Covent Garden, connecting Floral Street to King Street, and at its heart the courtyard forms a tranquil urban garden space. The Court itself was lovingly designed by Petersham Nurseries to be green all year round with the addition of Magnolia grandiflora in hand-crafted terracotta pots.
Floral Court provides 45 apartments, ranging from 14, 1-3 Bedrooms apartments and 31, 1-4 bedroom penthouses. Inspired by the heritage of the market, every apartment is unique and crafted with high quality materials and unparalleled attention to detail. Terraces and balconies feature views overlooking historic rooftops, the Floral Street cobbles and Petersham Nurseries al fresco dining below.
Alexander James was commissioned to design and dress 16 apartments, including 2 duplexes. The design style for these apartments is eclectic, with a focus on traditional British designers, reflecting the varied and interesting history of Covent Garden. Throughout, the furniture is elegant, mid-century in style, with a slight industrial flair as illustrated by the Breuer coffee table by Andrew Martin. The colour palette juxtaposes shades of green and orange combined with geometric prints, florals and textures. Plush fabrics in teal and red bring a rich warmth to the scheme.
So far we have installed 14 the remaining 2 apartments will be completed soon.
