GRAFF completes penthouse bathroom suite on London's famed Thames River Bank
The Sento Faucet Collection acts as the suite’s design focal point
2018 -A former beer brewery in the London neighbourhood of Southwark, located on the Thames riverbanks, has been transformed into a luxurious apartment complex, Towerbridge. Designed by local firm Alex Gardner from Interior Designed, the building’s penthouse bathroom features GRAFF’s® stunning Sento collection.
The Sento collection is characterized by clean, essential lines that result in a strong visual impact. Sento focuses on the pure form, enhanced by the almost maniacal research of perfect proportions, in an impeccable union between sensuality and rigor. Materials, details, workmanship and heritage are all expressed by the high quality of this faucet.
In this iteration, the Sento collection has found itself as part of the refurbishment of the historic Anchor Brewhouse building, which was previously a small brewery purchased in 1787 by the Scottish master brewer, John Courage.
The architectural design of the faucet was a natural fit for this project. Interior designer, Alex Gardner comments, "When I received the briefing to develop the interior design project, the furniture had many white elements and several metal railings. My idea was to emphasize the environments, especially in the living area, in the kitchen and in the bathrooms, by playing with tones, colours and luminous elements like GRAFF’s faucets.”
The Sento faucet’s body features an important diameter that allows it to cover the basin hole avoiding the unaesthetic base plate. The sinuous cuts allow the internal cartridge to perform all the necessary movements even without the classic lever cap. The spout is developed in a slim silhouette, giving the faucet as admirable lightness. The finishes and materials used for the London apartment are polished chrome, copper and gold. In this context, the Sento collection, in 24K polished gold, stands out inside the penthouse luxury settings.
