Almacantar, the developer behind Centre Point and The Bryanston, completes five contemporary townhouses at boutique Maida Vale development
Lyons Place by Almacantar is a collection of finely crafted, high-quality homes, set at the meeting point of Maida Vale, Little Venice and St John’s Wood. This boutique development features just 22 apartments, 2 duplex-penthouses and five three-storey townhouses. Surrounded by ample green space and some of the city’s most famous parks, canals and high-streets, Lyons Place allows for a quiet lifestyle in a coveted Zone 1 location, only moments from the heart of the city.
Lyons Place was designed by Farrells’ London practice in Marylebone and as a local resident, Sir Terry Farrell’s input was essential. The scheme, with its bright blue ceramic tiles, and striking petrol pump art installation, has clear elements of Sir Terry’s unique design signature.
The exclusive Townhouse Collection at Lyons Place consists of five elegantly designed three-bedroom homes, all with private street access from a quiet, residential road. Contemporary townhouses are a rarity in this part of London, offering residents the charm of a traditional townhouse, whilst benefitting from a highly modern, sleek design that prioritises natural light. The townhouses have been designed to offer ‘upside-down’ living, with reception rooms located on the top floor, maximising views over leafy Lyons Place. All living and dining rooms open onto at least one integrated terrace, with full height windows.
The townhouse show home has been beautifully dressed by award-winning interior designer Alexander James, to reflect the development’s bold colour and form, as well as the unique character of the surrounding area.
The townhouse features a carefully selected colour palette, which reflects the waterways of neighbouring Little Venice, with deep olive tones and crisp blues, as well as a warm palette of woods, metals and aged glass. Objects dotted throughout the space, from vintage cobbler’s lasts to local history books, have been chosen from the area’s many art and antiques dealers, to evoke the rich cultural history of this leafy corner of central London.
Lyons Place sits at the heart of a bustling Prime Central London neighbourhood, surrounded by the best that the city has to offer: opposite the canal and within walking distance of five tube stations, as well as world-renowned institutions such as Lord’s Cricket Ground, Abbey Road Studios, and London’s Royal Parks, Lyons Place offers village-style living in the heart of London.
Kathrin Hersel, Property Director at Almacantar, said: “Lyons Place presents a truly boutique offering, in one of the most lively and charming areas of London. Working closely with Sir Terry Farrell’s building and interiors team, and interior designer Alexander James, we have created a beautifully crafted collection of homes, offering buyers the chance to embed themselves in a vibrant local community, all within minutes of the city centre.”
Partner and project lead at Farrells, Peter Barbalov said: “Using our localised knowledge and urban placemaking expertise, and taking cues from Sir Terry, our team designed Lyons Place to be a colourful but sympathetic addition to Edgware Road. The new development marries the area’s history with contemporary architecture to provide an exceptional place for residents to call home.”
Laura Leadbetter, Senior Designer at Alexander James, said: “It has been a delight to explore the personality and character of the area around Lyons Place. Colour and texture, inspired both by the development’s surroundings and its exterior, have been chosen to create a refined interior, which makes no apology for its bold statements, whilst still conveying a timeless elegance.”
