Artelior International design practice and luxury penthouse projects in London featured in Storybook Magazine Issue 35
Croatian journalist and TV presenter Mia Kovačić talks with Una Barac and Ante Maric, founders of Artelior, about a couple of their recent projects in the UK. Una and Ante opened the doors to The Balmoral and Fulham Reach, two luxurious and beautifully appointed London penthouses, which are the work of internationally renowned design studio Artelior, with offices in London and Zagreb.
The Balmoral is located at the prestigious One Tower Bridge Development, near notable landmarks as The Tower of London and the London Assembly. With such iconic surroundings the interior, with its floor to ceiling windows, had to blend effortlessly into the surroundings. Furniture is striking but not dominate, fabrics are bold but calm. In the Master Bedroom, bespoke Italian wallpaper was incorporated into the headboard to amazing effect. Artelior worked closely with London artisan furniture manufacturers to make unique one-off pieces of furniture. Una and Ante also worked with a Croatian specialist joinery company to create unique pieces using the finest Italian stone, oak, veneer and brass.
Fulham Reach is situated in the west of London near Hammersmith. The ambiance of the place matches this great location with countless bars, restaurants and theatres. The 3-bedroom penthouse that Artelior created is breath-taking. Again, inspiration for the interior was taken from the surrounding landscape. Striking curation of artwork adorns the walls, the use of brass in mirrors and lamps adds warmth and tonal hues give an air of relaxation with the open plan living area creating the perfect setting for entertaining.
