The Gramercy, 300 Creek Road, Greenwich is a part private, part shared ownership development for Family Mosaic. We were commissioned to design both the private sale show apartment and the shared ownership apartment.
We were inspired by Greenwich’s strong maritime heritage and in particular the Cutty Sark, its journeys to far flung destinations across the globe and its construction. The use of timber on a metal frame meant the Cutty Sark was an elegant and fast vessel, which mainly transported wool from Australia as well as teas. We reflected its intricate structure and precious cargo in our design.
Many of the furniture items have expressed steel frames and reclaimed timber but still look modern and contemporary. For example; to make a statement in the smaller third bedroom/study we chose a slim but tall structured console featuring exotic timber and a black steel frame and in the living area we chose a beautiful woollen wall hanging, reminiscent of pieces brought back by sailors.
We selected a rich palette of deep navy, subtle blue hues and gentle greys throughout the apartment with hints of brighter accent colours in fabrics, particularly through woollen throws and cushions. Our choice of artwork and accessories really helps to emphasise the Cutty Sark’s heritage which is particularly evident in the botanical hand drawings of striking ocean species.
