Queens W1
Queens W1

Queens is a collection of sixteen bespoke apartments including a rooftop penthouse pavilion, each with its own unique design. Apartments range in size from one bedroom through to three bedroom, with most featuring either a private balcony or terrace.

A feeling of discerning luxury is evident from the outset, with entrance hallways graced with oak parquet floors and featuring an array of mirror fronted storage and coat cupboards. Generously proportioned living areas showcase the same herringbone parquet, high ceilings and recessed lighting and combine space for living and dining with integrated Bulthaup kitchens, including high specification Miele and Siemens appliances.

Bedrooms continue the emphasis upon indulgent, light and well proportioned spaces with principal bedrooms featuring adjoining dressing areas and en-suite bathrooms. The bathroom and shower rooms in every apartment feature textured Carrara marble wall finishes and porcelain ceramic floors for the master bathrooms, along with select fixtures and fittings.

The penthouse is a graceful, floating pavilion at the top of the Queens building, with terraces to three sides. These integrated outdoor spaces help dissolve the borders between inside and outside living and provide strong vantage points over the surrounding neighbourhood, particularly the route towards the lush green spaces of Hyde Park.

The rounded corners of the penthouse pavilion recall the fluid ocean liner curves of the Art Deco period and combine with the engaging appeal of the contemporary interiors to create an inviting and unique home in the heart of London.

The Penthouse was sold in Autumn 2014.

A landmark building at the heart of one of the most vibrant quarters of west London, Queens offers luxury living within crafted modern spaces full of character and delight. Sixteen individually designed and spacious apartments range across this beautifully tailored five-storey building, making the most of the natural light and the open views across such a dynamic, desirable and well connected location.

Queens is a fresh and contemporary building tucked behind part of the original façade of a 1930s Art Deco cinema. The key section of this character frontage has been carefully preserved and restored, lending an elegant and sophisticated identity to the building as a whole. It has also provided a degree of inspiration to the design of both exteriors and interiors by renowned architects Stiff & Trevillion, who have used subtle echoes of Deco style within an elegant and thoughtful approach to this standout residential building.

Queens cinema was originally completed by architects J. Stanley & Clare in 1932, with its crisp Art Deco identity making it a key presence in this part of London. The colourful mosaic tiles, period signage and stained glass windows of the façade to Bishop’s Bridge Road have been carefully restored and updated, blending with the streamlined modern form of the rest of the building, which features a dedicated entrance at 200 Queensway, accessed via a recently landscaped street setting.

Contemporary tilework and fluted cladding to the newly built elements of the exterior continue to lend Queens a distinctive and seductive feel. Subtle splashes of colour and pattern enrich and enliven the outside of the building, while the many integrated balconies and terraces help blur the boundaries between inside and outside living space.

A dedicated reception area, lined with textured travertine walls and a marble floor, establishes the sophisticated and carefully considered aesthetic of Queens throughout, with all of the common areas lifted by carefully chosen materials, exquisite detailing and an engaging design voice. Ground floor amenities also include private and secure parking within the building, along with bicycle storage.

Queens is a building that is rich in character and history but also provides the state of the art services, amenities and appliances that you would expect from a luxury modern residence. There is a focus on sustainability throughout with heat recovery systems and low energy costs as standard. Queens offers the best of contemporary style at a landmark address, reborn for twenty first century living.

The ground floor retail unit at Queens has been let to Heals.
