Tapestry Residences – in the heart of King's Cross – belongs to the category of truly outstanding residential buildings.
Tapestry Residences – in the heart of King’s Cross – belongs to the category of truly outstanding residential buildings. They are outstanding in terms of size – organized with different formulae, apartments, townhouses, penthouses; of location – beside St Pancras Lock on the Regent’s Canal, in the former industrial area of Gasholder Park; in terms of the urban regeneration model – commissioned by the developer Argent to Niall McLaughlin Architects – designed as a case history of metropolitan development with strong focus on sustainability, quality restoration and new buildings, balance between solids and voids, innovative dialogue between formal languages.
The particular features of this project include the rich and cultured tapestry, design that becomes ornament, refined geometries elaborated as quotations and research for various types of pattern. The virtuous link between highly qualified craftsmanship, weaving, art and attention to detail was key in designing and planning Tapestry. Weedon Architects took care of the interiors: attention to detail and customization also made the residences unique thanks to furniture and kitchens by Dada, a benchmark for top quality projects and with a formidable reputation worldwide.
