Gothic Penthouse Revived with Modern Finishes and Pops of Color

This three-bedroom penthouse, designed by Thomas Griem of British firm TG-Studio, occupies a building that was once the Victorian Midland Grand Hotel. After the building lost its luster, a £200-million redevelopment by the Manhattan Loft Corp. gave birth to two floors housing the St. Pancras London Renaissance Hotel – topped by 67 private residences. At the height of it all, both in stature and in design, is this amazing penthouse loft – three levels of interesting architecture, modern furnishing and luxurious finishes. The designer was given creative freedom, and began by tearing out all the existing finishes, replacing them with elements that are unique and contemporary, yet respect the building’s Victorian beginnings.

This bedroom boasts a dreamy, muted palette of off-whites and grey, and a small but essentials pop of color. Light pouring in through the large window invites an interplay of shadow and light on the angled walls and arcing doorway.

Each guest bedroom on this level leads to a bath – mirror images of each other. A chandelier is suspended from the soaring ceiling of each bath, one in black and one in white. Marble walls and floors, and glass interior walls are a sleek, sophisticated finish to these luxurious spaces.
