For independent real estate firm CIT, Goddard Littlefair was one of the leading design studios selected to create a show apartment for South Bank Tower: a ‘Black Edition’ duplex, spread over a west-facing corner location on the tower’s 36th and 37th floors. The apartment’s spectacular views, especially of sunset, inspired a dramatic colour spectrum of rusts and ochres, grey, oyster, soft blues and teals. A hanging sculpture in the double-height living space forms a beautiful, transparent central feature.
Goddard Littlefair completed a stunning, three-bed, 220 sq m duplex apartment within the new upper floors of the development, located on a prime, west-facing corner on levels 36 and 37. For the interiors concept, the Goddard Littlefair design team sought to give the luxurious apartment character and detail through a sophisticated design scheme, which respects the building’s modernist heritage in terms of style, exercises restraint via simple forms and expresses a version of bespoke luxury that is revealed over time through subtlety and precise detailing.
On the upper floor of the duplex are two generous bedrooms, both en suite, along with a dressing room. Goddard Littlefair re-orientated the master bedroom from the original space plan so that it might face out towards the view, putting in extra closet space at the same time and extending the dressing room. The master bedroom features a tranquil colour scheme, including lilacs, pinks, greys and deep aubergines, plus a bedspread and ombre-effect throw. A large-scale embroidered ‘sunburst’ artwork headboard above the bed picks up on this colourway and features lilacs and bronze.
In 2016, South Bank Tower was the winner of the gold at the London Design Awards for best Residential Interior Design.
