This 2-bed apartment for sale in Burlington Gate is surrounded by exclusive apartments and galleries, as well as a new public space and arcade that runs from Old Burlington Street to Cork Street.

This stunning brand new 2 bed apartment for sale is located in the heart of Mayfair close to the Royal Academy and Burlington Arcade. The area was developed most extensively during the 18th Century and is typified by a hierarchy of streets and squares framed by close grained Georgian architecture. Successive eras of development have taken place and the area now has a great variety of architectural styles and scales.
RSHP’s design has evolved through an analysis of the immediate and wider context, which has resulted in a sensitive scheme that responds to the height, scale and urban grain of its surroundings and provides a positive contribution to the streetscape of Old Burlington Street and Cork Street. The development comprises two linear buildings connected by a single translucent core that allows light into the heart of the scheme and it also includes an on-site concierge, a residents-only gym & spa, 24-hour security and private underground parking.
The street facades are expressed in a series of bays in proportion to the nearby townhouses, restoring the prevalent urban grain. Inside, apartments are arranged so that the living areas face the streets and bedrooms face the internal light well, taking advantage of daylight as much as possible. At the upper levels façade are inclined and setback giving open surrounding views of city roofscape.
The materials for this 2-bed apartment for sale have been meticulously selected to reflect the architectural heritage of the area. The main structural frame is made up of high-quality reinforced concrete containing a high proportion of crushed granite, basalt and mica aggregate. This dark background is broken up by a series of light stainless steel frames and matches the colour contrast of the surrounding brick facades with their white window frames. These stainless steel elements surround either windows or solid panels made up of handmade bricks, referring to the subtle modelling on the adjacent building exteriors. This apartment is an opportunity not to be missed.
