Centre Point Residences, West End
Morpheus London was given the rare opportunity to work on one of London’s most Iconic landmarks, Centre Point Residences. Appointed by Almacantar, Morpheus designed a new show apartment within the recently completed development drawing inspiration from the building’s architecture and history, while keeping in mind the vibrant and creative area it resides in. The distinctive façade and its masculinity has been the core of the design concept, offset by the colour palette and the choice of materials. It was vital to create a scheme that is as unique as the Centre Point Residences are, so it consists almost entirely of bespoke furniture in addition to carefully curated artwork.
It was imperative to Morpheus to achieve a strong visual impact from the moment you enter the apartment. The dramatic entrance hallway features black wooden panelling and beautiful contrasting flooring; its characteristics enhanced with surrealistic artwork by Miguel Vallinas Prietro while the delicate, bespoke mirrored console opposite elevates the space. Additionally the textured three-dimensional artwork further down the hall is a fantastic focal point while seated at the dining table.
The feature joinery in the living room uses strong linear angles echoing the brutalist façade of the building whilst the mirror and brass elements soften the former. The same concept has been applied to the dining table, where the mirrored top allows reflections of the joinery and the stunning views.
The joinery wraps around the reception room forming unity within the space, maximising storage and seating space whilst allowing for unobstructed city views. Tactile woven leather benches not only create contrast to the calm greys of the veneer but provide an excellent resting place with fabulous views of Soho and Oxford Street.
A key piece within the scheme is the unique coffee table, inspired by the terrazzo composite stone used throughout the building. Combining two types of terrazzo set in a steel frame, the geometric design may seem uncomplicated, however its weight and structure required high levels of detailed design and craftsmanship.
The Master Bedroom features a headboard that echoes the design of the living room joinery, with onyx lights built in amongst brass pieces, framed by dramatic wall lights. The asymmetric, curved desk opposite emphasises movement flow in this open plan, ensuite room.
The slightly more feminine, multi-layered interior of the Guest Bedroom continues to follow the angular theme. The unique sideboard features layered geometric door fronts, brass frame and a smoke glass top. The headboard and bed base has been upholstered in rich burned orange leather with built in fabric, cushion panels completing the scheme for a development that Morpheus felt hugely privileged to have worked within, as this iconic building moves into the next chapter of its history.
