Tactile Design, Embassy Gardens with David Phillips

Embassy Gardens is a premium development in the Nine Elms regeneration zone. Recognised for its iconic glass Sky Pool suspended 115 feet in the air, this prestigious property surrounding the US embassy boasts both residential and business units.

Built by the Ballymore Group, this beautiful London building features a furnishing solution from David Phillips to inspire prospective tenants on the endless design possibilities.

Comprised of 1, 2 or 3 bedroom and penthouse apartments, David Phillips worked in collaboration with Ballymore to offer something unique to its customers, with the option of turn-key furniture packs or incentive vouchers.

Targeting both owner-occupied and sales to investor buyers through Savills and JLL, the design team worked closely with tenants, providing an informative design consultation as part of the incentive.

Unlike its competitors this exclusive offering provided an opportunity to revolutionise the traditional retail experience for property professionals. For this particular project, David Phillips supplied and installed stock within 2-3 days; as the specialist services provider holds all product in stock there was no wait time or delay which is rare within the industry.

The design brief for the show apartment was to create something impactful, using block colours, design-led furniture and neutral wallpaper – to show customers that they can be brave when it comes to interior design by creating a unique statement in each individual space.

“As an aspirational building it was important to highlight to discerning tenants, landlords and agents what can be achieved with the right colour options and also on a more accessible level. It’s important to be savvy when it comes to design and we chose to move away from ‘safe’ colours in the show apartment and to instead explore on-trend shades, for example ever-present green tones.”
