This month the last collection of homes in the popular new neighbourhood at Embassy Gardens in London’s Nine Elms comes to the market. The Courtyard Collection at The Modern comprises 153 suites and one, two and three bedroom apartments, all boasting a bold and contemporary style.
“The Modern is the last piece of the Embassy Gardens story,” says Roger Black, Creative Director at developer Ballymore. “The interiors of these apartments are very beautiful, special and different to what has come before.” Designed by London-based design duo Benningen Lloyd, the Courtyard Collection’s homes combine craftsmanship with bold colours, drawing inspiration from nearby New Covent Garden Flower Market. Apartments in the 21 storey Modern building floor have light-filled, airy interiors with extensive glazing to allow views across the capital.
Embassy Gardens has transformed an 8 hectare site beside the River Thames. It is now home to the US Embassy, publisher Penguin Random House’s new office, a bustling neighbourhood with cafes and top restaurants such as chef Robin Gill’s Darby’s, landscaped gardens and more than 1,500 apartments. It is also the location of London’s newest landmark, the Sky Pool, a transparent pool installed some 35 metres above street level between two of Embassy Gardens’ apartment buildings.
The development’s own Eg:le club allows residents and their guests access to the Sky Pool and includes a range of amenities. These include a concierge service, club lounge, two workspace suites, private cinema, indoor pool and spa and health and fitness club.
“The popularity of Embassy Gardens has been growing in line with Nine Elms’ remarkable transformation, and the addition of The Modern creates more homes in response to this demand, completing this leading mixed-use development’s residential journey,” says John Mulryan, Group Managing Director of Ballymore.
