SHAPING UP NICELY
Shape Real Estate has partnered with Conran Contracts to create a unique show apartment and marketing suite. The Taper Building, which will house 56 luxury, one, two and three bedroom apartments in the heart of trendy Bermondsey, minutes from the Shard, was launched last month.
The marketing suite will showcase the development through digital installations and projections and the show apartment will reflect industrial elements of Bermondsey’s past and incorporate leather elements into the interiors to resonate back to the area’s former incarnation as a leather market.
The apartments will feature contemporary fitted kitchens with quartz worktops and integrated appliances, sleek white bathrooms with digital showers and porcelain floor titles, hardwood flooring in the living areas and fitted wardrobes in master bedrooms. Each apartment will have its own private outdoor space; high-tech media and internet services and climate control provided by underfloor heating, comfort cooling and heat recovery. Residents will also have access to a 24-hour concierge, a state-of-the-art gym, a landscaped central courtyard and rooftop garden with views of the Shard.
Riccardo Dawson, Head of Design at Shape Real Estate, said: “This is our first development in Bermondsey and we chose the development for the excellent connections to the City and walking distance from London Bridge Station. These are homes for Londoners who want to work and live well in a vibrant and growing community.”
