The Draycott is a revival collection of limited edition apartments situated within two minutes of London's iconic Sloane Square. The imposing façade of this Dutch-inspired 19th century corner building disguises an all new interior structure comprising ten individually designed, purpose-built residences.
Hans Sloane, after whom Sloane Square is named, was an avid 18th century collector and founder of the British Museum. The art of collecting has appropriately inspired the design and concept scheme for The Draycott.
While the building has itself a familiar Sloane Square prominence, the interior fabric has been stripped away, subtly replaced with an all-new structure that reinterprets the key traditional principles, while at the same time introduces a new interplay of classical and contemporary design styles.
The Victorian end of terrace property on Draycott Place is in the Pont Street Dutch' style, a term used to describe the tall gabled façades of this area of Chelsea and Kensington which is reminiscent of the distinctive gables and varied fenestration of Dutch 17th century buildings.
Behind the historic facade, an entirely new interior awaits. Design details throughout are inspired by the building's context and Dutch upbringing.
The team at 1508 noticed a Dutch influence to the tall gabled façades along Draycott Place, and mirror these influences inside. Details, such as the stone flooring and the specialist joinery, will remind you of Flemish baroque paintings, but completely reimagined to a contemporary palette.
The Draycott is a limited edition of bespoke apartments, one to four bed, each of an individual specification. Designed to blend the best of materials, hand-crafted by a wide-range of UK suppliers to create a hierarchy of specialist interior finishes.
The Draycott brings together a highly-acclaimed and skilled team of developers, designers, professional consultants and trade contractors, each with a passion for creating exciting, high-impact spaces in which to live.
The Draycott is a truly wonderful and unique scheme. The attention to detail throughout is exceptional.Sarah Peck
