Spectacular Living: The Penthouse at Holland Park Gate

A first look inside Holland Park Gate’s light-filled penthouse, in the heart of Kensington

Located on a vibrant corner of High Street Kensington, Holland Park Gate is a mixed-use development offering an elegant solution to West London living, promoting a balanced lifestyle within a peaceful and vibrant ecosystem.

The expansive site was once an Art Deco cinema. Its Portland stone façade, built in the Neo-Grecian style complete with a recessed entrance that references a stage, has been meticulously resorted to its former glory by British architectural firm Squire and Partners. The property’s entrance reception and Health Club were designed by Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni, known for his contemporary furniture design and most notable for his work on The Oberoi Dubai. The property consists of four elegant buildings offering 71 generously proportioned apartments with one, two, three, and four bedrooms, all finished with Lodha’s trademark attention to quality and detail.

The Penthouse at Holland Park Gate, sitting atop the sixth and seventh floors of the building has been designed by Lodha’s in-house design practice, Studio Lodha. Unveiled exclusively to the GCC marketplace, the Penthouse has an internal footprint of 5,500 sq ft and features a large outdoor terrace that wraps the entirety of the sixth floor. Floor-to-ceiling windows have been seamlessly designed to flow from the indoor to the outdoor, capturing views of Holland Park and west London at every corner, allowing residents to enjoy outdoor living throughout the year.

“The Penthouse will be grand but not intimidating. With floor-to-ceiling windows on both levels, the residence welcomes an abundance of natural light and will be designed to enjoy at each moment throughout the day, evening and into night,” Blandine de Navacelle, Director of Interior Design describes. “The interiors will be designed to respond to shifting light patterns, creating an elegant but cosy and private home for entertaining, unwinding or creating. The Penthouse will be bought to life through a constant contrast between raw materials and the most refined details; mixing natural textures and classic craftsmanship to create a one-of-a-kind home,” Blandine concludes.

The Penthouse will also feature a unique collection of contemporary art, embroidered patterned fabrics and hand-finished bespoke pieces of furniture. The light herringbone flooring, white marble countertops, and tadelak walls compliment the natural light coming in from the floor-to-ceiling windows by accentuating the natural warmth and softness of the living spaces by day, while deep hues and rich fabrics like the navy velvet armchairs will add depth and sophistication for an evening ambience.

With residents’ health, wellbeing and happiness of utmost importance to Holland Park Gate, exceptional service plays a vital role in the property’s offering. Fully serviced by Lodha UK’s highly regarded private hospitality company Saint Amand, Holland Park Gate will be equipped with a dedicated and experienced lifestyle team, available around the clock to fulfil residents’ every need, delivering a range of services befitting a five-star hotel. The scheme will feature a dedicated Health Club & Spa including a 25m pool, gym, private treatment rooms, dining room, and library.

Following the success of No.1 Grosvenor Square and Lincoln Square, Lodha UK’s third transformation project Holland Park Gate is set to become one of the world’s more desirable addresses with the finest design and highest levels of luxury and service.
