Louise Bradley transforms a traditional London apartment into an open-plan contemporary living space
This London apartment has undergone a huge transformation – from having a very traditional feel to becoming an open-plan contemporary living space. The original features have been maintained however, including a dark stone fireplace and glass balustrade, along with a floating staircase, which opens up the space and makes the whole area appear larger.
The muted and light tones create a cleaner and modern feel. The open-plan mezzanine, along with the built-in joinery, is minimal and utilises the space effectively.

Designed by interior designer Louise Bradley, the living space is not only elegant but functional and efficient. The apartment has three bedrooms, all of which feature contemporary art, bespoke lighting features and soft relaxing tones to generate a sense of retreat. Mirrors have been used to reflect the light and open spaces in order to enhance the surroundings.
‘The unique architecture of this Knightsbridge loft apartment offered the opportunity to design a modern, pared-back interior,’ Bradley explains. ‘The double-height reception room leads to an elegant mezzanine via a contemporary floating staircase, while the bespoke joinery was designed to emphasise the height of the property and allow natural light into this beautiful space.
‘Thanks to its neutral colour palette and our signature, classic contemporary style of furniture and soft furnishings, the property now offers a welcome retreat in a busy part of central London.’
