The Corinthia is situated near the River Thames, ministries of state and the official home of the British Prime Minster.
The apartments feature large living spaces, high ceilings and the finest materials. All the doors are constructed from ebonised macassar, highly polished to produce a mirror-like sheen. In the master bathrooms, the walls and floors are clad in Calacatta Oro marble slabs, individually selected at the Italian quarry. The floors are constructed from fumed, straight-grained oak or covered in deep-pile silk carpets. And in a masterly reinvention, the new gas-fuelled fires connect to the original terracotta chimney pots.
World-class architects, designers and craftsmen have joined forces to create eleven palatial apartments and a magnificent penthouse.
Behind the period façade, residences enjoy the modern sophistication with uncompromising standards.Sarah Peck
