Banda Property, the boutique property company specialising in development, search and interior design, has been chosen as the winner of the best ‘Residential Development’ award category at the 2016 International Design and Architecture Awards for the second phase of its renowned Parkgate House development, ‘The Heritage Collection’.
Shortlisted by the international interior design magazine, Design et al, Banda’s development was then voted by 46,000 design industry professionals to win the coveted ‘Property Development’ category, fighting off fierce competition in this respected awards programme for the global design community.
The two-bedroom apartments comprising The Heritage Collection at Parkgate House were the second and final phase of the Banda’s transformation of the former Victorian Bakery conversion of 25,000 sq ft, whose first phase sold out within 24 hours of launch.
Leading all interior design aspects for The Heritage Collection with Banda’s inimitable design acumen was Creative Director, Rebecca Wakefield, who carefully curated a collective of artisans and experts in their respective design fields, to ensure superior quality finishes with well thought out spaces for supreme living and entertaining.
The mission for the design was to create the finest living space possible, combined with the ultimate in contemporary design for modern living and comfort with traditional craftsmanship. A sheer sense of space was offered by vast open plan living areas and unusually tall (3.3m) ceiling heights with beautifully restored, expansive arch windows affording each apartment with a virtually uninterrupted, dual aspect affording maximum space and light. This sleek, highly functional, highly luxurious and yet understated living environment reflected its location of Battersea’s ‘Creative Quarter’ – home to the Royal College of Art, the former studios of Vivienne Westwood and architects Foster + Partners and Will Alsop.
Banda’s founder and chief executive, Edo Mapelli Mozzi comments;
“Our vision for The Heritage Collection was guided by our close understanding of the market, their functional design needs and aspirations. We strive to achieve originality and design excellence across every development, and we do this by selecting a tailor-made team that can deliver the high quality and point of difference in each design. It’s extremely rewarding for the Banda design studio to have recognition from the international design industry on The Heritage Collection. We have a pipeline of prime London projects under way, set for completion in the next few years so we look forward to continuing the design success.”
