The Fenchurch: Named Best Interior Design project of the Year 

Press release: 23.11.2021

The Fenchurch apartment in Wapping’s London Dock has scooped the Best Interior Design prize at The Whathouse? Awards 2021, as Judges applaud property developer St George for pushing creative boundaries, upping the ante in terms of quality and unleashing a plethora of colour to revitalise post-pandemic city living. 

London Dock by St George, is situated in the heart of Wapping, just moments from Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, St Katharine Docks and the City.   According to Clive Shepherd, the technical director of St George, most of the design and materials selection is from the in-house design team; when combined with the design from Una Barac of Atellior, the two companies have created a fusion of colour that is exciting, young and dynamic.

In the kitchen, sleek uncluttered lines, finished in anthracite grey with fluted detailing, combine with light-wood high-level cabinets in a modern shaker style. Gone and forgotten are boring white cupboards in bedrooms, with St George using fluted glass doors framed in black, and there are small winning touches such as the wallpaper flow along the wall behind the bedhead in the second bedroom.

The bathrooms have been upgraded to luxury hotel levels with gold mosaic tiling around the mirrored cabinetry, a black-framed bath and shower screen, timber drawers and shelves, and large-format black marble tiles. A comfortable laid-back style in rich amber and ochre tones with sofas in cool green and the fluted leather sofa by designer Circus 25 create a truly harmonious experience.

The Judges said: “St George is a deserving winner of the title Best Interior Design, The Fenchurch apartment in London Dock shows the talent of a true expert in interior design.  Congratulations to St George, which had the guts to embrace the world of colour and up the specification.”
