What becomes evident throughout the Singer Suite of Chelsea Barracks is a scene celebrating beauty and diversity.
Situated on the fifth floor of international property developer Qatari Diar Europe’s supreme establishment in Belgravia, the five-bedroom apartment is aptly named after the famous Porsche engineer Norbert Singer, known for his holistic design approach. “We drew inspiration from Singer’s principle that ‘everything is important’ for the design narrative,” says Eva Leone, luxury design house, Lawson Robb’s studio director. “With that in mind, we curated a meticulous design language around a fictitious couple who are ambitious, successful and established in their respective industries.” Scroll through the gallery below (Photography: Alexander James) to experience its alluring glamour: Blessed with floor-to-ceiling windows that enjoy an abundance of natural light and unobstructed views of London, the apartment boasts soaring ceilings at 2.8 metres, spacious doorways, flexible storage systems and generous-sized rooms for urban luxury living. Eva Leone, Lawson Robb’s studio director The Singer Suite is accentuated with a sense of personality and warmth, creating a liveable yet luxury abode for modern tastemakers. While the residence was naturally elegant and sophisticated in style, it was essential to layer the space with warmth, personality and approachability to streamline aesthetics. “Our brief was to transform a show apartment into a home – a serene getaway that is livable, personal and brings the client happiness, privacy and utmost comfort,” Eva continues. “I think that the most pleasure will come from knowing that you are living in a space that is just as suited to appear on the pages of a magazine as it is to be lived in with comfort and ease.” The aesthetic discourse is meticulously extended to some of key features of the home: the chandelier in the formal dining area strikes a vivid resemblance of the vertical brass piston in the car engine; the bronze metal insert in the coffee tabletop positioned in the dining and lounge room, meanwhile, is inspired by the fascia that crosses the vehicle’s roof. Enveloping the home throughout is a soothing colour palette composed of petrol blue, burgundy, bronze and wooden accents, complete with exceptional joinery and modern furniture designs. The dining room perhaps best epitomizes the design team’s predilection for exquisite finds. A case in point is the underneath of the hexagonal table, a bespoke rug inlaid with bronze-tinted glass doubles as a surprising art piece for all to appreciate. Forming the heart of the home is an informal, multi-functional kitchen and living space to suit a myriad of social occasions. Standout brands accentuating this beautiful abode include comfortable furnishings from Rubelli, Pierre Frey, Jim Thompson and Altfield, as well as top-notch kitchen appointments from Sub-Zero & Wolf and Gaggenau. Comfort was top priority in the design scheme as delicate furnishings were selected as a celebration of craftsmanship and luxurious living, including Giorgetti's Genius chair and notable lighting fixtures from Lee Broom, Henge and Ochre. Miles Wood, sales director of Qatari Diar Europe, the International Property Developer of Chelsea Barracks, further reveals the impeccable advantages of the residence, “What makes the development unique is the sheer quantity of green space we have provided to the public – 40% of the site will be garden squares for which the public can walk through freely.” Highlighted by streamlined aesthetics, the bedrooms are relatively muted and serene than the rest of the home, forming a genuine refuge for the homeowerns to unwind. The elegant textures and sumptuous appointments lend understated drama to the residence without being overpowering.

Ultimately, this is a cohesive, functional space that fosters connections and promotes transformative dialogues, successfully brought to life for the many happy occasions of life.
