Canaletto is a new architectural landmark in the heart of London, by renowned Dutch architecture practice UN Studio. Goddard Littlefair designed and styled two apartments in the building’s signature Beaumont Collection. The client brief was to create a comfortable and welcoming living space, with a sense of style and luxury expected from such distinctive building and high-level London living. The design challenge was to encompass the dynamic city life that surrounds the development whilst also creating serene and inviting living space with an underlying line of luxury.
Nestled on the 25th floor, with sweeping views across London, each apartment includes close to 2000 square feet of living space, three double bedrooms with two en-suite, separate bathroom and powder room, a study and spacious open plan kitchen and lounge area with dual aspect panoramas enjoyed through floor-to-ceiling seamless glass. As a result a modern and serene sanctuary environment was achieved by countering the cold feel and hard materiality of glass with curved furniture and delicate tactile materials.
The scheeme was achieved with furnishings in tones of blush, light blue, and cream join a mix of materials from light wood, marble, and ceramics to demure metallics, creating layers of personality and reflecting the architectural design of the building’s façade, fluidly connecting the transition from outside to inside.
In October 2020, Goddard Littlefair was the winner of Best Interior Design in the Development category of The Sunday Times British Homes Awards for Canaletto. “We are absolutely delighted to win the British Homes Award for Best Interior Design for the Development at Canaletto. It highlights the success of our ethos of creating something unique for every project while maintaining an authentic, personal identity” – Jo Littlefair, Co-Founder and Director of Goddard Littlefair.
