Land Securities‘ latest residential development combines cutting—edge contemporary design with a sense of history reflecting the fast-changing face of Victoria.
In choosing the colour scheme for Kings Gate, Millier took as inspiration the surrounding streets and nearby St James’s Park. ‘We wanted to soften the appearance of the building and also give it a sense of context, so we took the image of the sun setting over the park and the historic red-brick buildings of Victoria as our starting point,’ explains Westlake. ‘That instantly gave the interiors greater warmth, which can often be quite a challenge in a new-build development.’
