Grand designs: London’s latest architectural masterpieces   


If you’re a discerning investor with an eye for exteriors, check out these top five London developments, architecturally unique and brimming with investment potential.


The Compton, St. John’s Wood

Boasting one of London’s most desirable postcodes, The Compton is a stunning collection of apartments and penthouses designed in collaboration with world-famous interior designer, Kelly Hoppen. The striking art deco-inspired exterior features a series of bays designed to maximise the superb views across Regent’s Park and Lord’s Cricket Ground, while offering privacy for residents. Priced GBP1.2m to GBP4.2m.


The Chilterns, Maylebone

Own your very own slice of architectural prestige in the heart of W1. With interiors from renowned designer Rabih Hage, The Chilterns radiates class right down to the original photographic prints by David Bailey in the reception area gallery. The building’s façade is inspired by The Beatles’ iconic Apple Boutique, once located close by, with vertical patterns and colours designed to resemble records on a shelf. Priced from GBP7.5m.


Mayfair Park Residences, Mayfair

The collection of 18 private residences, serviced by Dorchester Collection, seamlessly blends contemporary architectural touches with original elements of the building’s graceful Grade II-listed façade. The overall effect is a stunning addition to Mayfair’s unique character and an exceptional home for the stylish investor. Priced GBP6m to GBP30m.


375 Kensington High Street, Kensington

This luxury development encapsulates the area’s reputation for cosmopolitan design and fine living. Comprising seven buildings set around a traditionally inspired London courtyard garden, many of the apartments and all penthouses include private balconies or terraces, which pay homage to the stuccoed terraces of Kensington’s Victorian mansion blocks. Exceptional facilities and refined interiors make this a sophisticated investment. Priced GBP1.2m to GBP7.7m.


Holland Park Villas, Holland Park

A spectacular gated development of apartments and penthouses, Holland Park Villas blends architectural modernity with a sophisticated sense of heritage design. While the interiors are exquisitely appointed, it’s the tranquil gardens by award-winning landscape architects, Gillespies, which really set this development apart: stone bridges cross a moat and lead into a central courtyard complete with woodland and ornamental planting. Priced GBP6m to GBP15m.
