Derwent London Launches Queens Apartments in W2
14 Nov 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 the 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 cinema frontage has been carefully preserved and restored. It also provided inspiration to both the exterior and interior design by renowned architects Stiff + Trevillion. The cinema was designed by architects J. Stanley & Clare and completed in 1932. The colourful mosaic tiles, period signage and stained glass windows of the Bishop’s Bridge Road façade have been carefully restored and updated, blending with the streamlined form of the rest of the modern building, which features a dedicated entrance on the recently landscaped Queensway.
Simon Silver, Director of Derwent London, commented:
"We are delighted to launch Queens apartments to the market. It’s a niche development and an elegant solution for the refurbishment of this former Art Deco cinema, beautifully crafted to a design by Stiff + Trevillion architects. The finished building contributes to the regeneration of this part of Westbourne Grove, and is well-placed for Crossrail when it arrives in 2018.”
