Bearing the unmistakable hallmark of David Chipperfield, One Kensington Gardens establishes itself as an exclusive residential area in the capital of London.

The One Kensington Gardens residential development in London is located on a prominent site facing Kensington Gardens, bounded by Victoria Road and De Vere Gardens. The project comprises 97 high-quality residential units and includes the internal reorganisation of the existing site and three new buildings facing Kensington Road, Victoria Road, and Canning Passage respectively. It also involves the reuse and incorporation of the nineteenth-century terraced house façades along Victoria Road and De Vere Gardens, which sit within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s De Vere Gardens Conservation Area.

A high-end apartment complex designed according to the minimalist tenets of pure and straight lines.

The project is a single development broken down into six buildings; three new buildings and three that include the re-use of the nineteenth-century façades. The new buildings follow the massing and heights of the original terrace. A grand open loggia wraps around the apartments facing Kensington Gardens. On either side of the loggia, the façades of the new buildings intensify in rhythm and architectural language as they approach the historic façades. Internally, a series of courtyards connected by a continuous passage link the various buildings. Whilst not publicly accessible, the courtyards provide the surrounding apartments with natural light and a visual connection to an internal garden.

An collection of 97 luxury apartments situated in the heart of London’s illustrious Royal Borough.

The apartments themselves vary in size, differentiated primarily through their position within the development – 29 of the apartments are within the three new buildings and 68 are located behind the retained façades. Residents benefit from a 24-hour dedicated concierge, valet parking, health spa, 25m indoor swimming pool, a private health and fitness centre, sauna and steam room, in addition to private treatment rooms.
