Hartmann Designs are shortlisted for the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014

Hartmann Designs‘ London duplex apartment has been shortlisted for the Residential £1 – £2.5 Million (Property Value) award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014.

The client requested that the look and feel of the apartment should have a Scandinavian feel with neutral colours and simple clean lines within the Interior architecture.

A 2 bedroom en-suite duplex apartment based in London, with grand expansive views out over the River Thames and the South Downs. The feel and aesthetic for this apartment is based on contemporary Scandinavian design, with a neutral colour palette of pastels contributing softness and serenity to the overall space. A tranquil atmosphere has been gained through an open plan living space, with a large kitchen/diner that leads smoothly onto the living room.



This spacious design allows light to travel effortlessly throughout the residence and gives the useable space immense flexibility. An eclectic mix of Scandinavian and European furniture furnishes the apartment complimenting the architectural finishes and the neutral colour scheme. In addition to the furniture, contemporary art was carefully selected for each room enhancing the tone and character of each given space. The result is an interior that speaks in an effortlessly chic and luxurious language, complimented by the clean lines of the finishes and the contemporary furniture.


Previously this apartment was very dark and the kitchen was compartmentalised from the living area creating 2 not very usable spaces. By opening up the kitchen to the dining and living area this is a now a very spacious area and is perfect for city living and entertaining. We also re-positioned the staircase which in turn gave us more space for the bedrooms and bathrooms.
