Onyx Apartments, King’s Cross, London


Jigsaw Interior Architecture were commissioned by Taylor Wimpey Central London to provide an interior architectural scheme and a show home for Onyx, their new residential development of apartments in a prime position on the Regent’s Canal.

Jigsaw Interior Architecture’s brief as the designers specifying all the kitchens, bathrooms and interior finishes, in addition to creating the interior design of the development’s show home, was to create a fresh sense of luxury living for the many young professionals looking to buy in this exciting area.

It’s not often that you see a transformation as complete and successful as the recent regeneration of King’s Cross. Jigsaw Interior Architecture wanted to reflect the area’s new waterside café life, public spaces, exciting new galleries and shops surrounding Onyx by creating a dynamic design for its apartments. Jigsaw wanted to provide a striking scheme that would celebrate the historic Regent Canal’s renewed purpose as a vibrant setting for residential living in the Capital.

Jigsaw Interior Architecture specified beautifully grained, cabinetry in a dark, smoky wood veneer in the kitchens which is perfectly offset by the glazed reflective splashbacks.

Paler engineered timber flooring in the open plan living/kitchen/dining area provides a perfect canvas for the bright, fresh and colourful scheme designed for the show home. Integrated Siemens kitchen appliances, including an induction hob and washer dryers in the utility cupboards were specified for all apartments. The clean lines of our design for the kitchens with soft closing cabinetry is contemporary and minimal, placing the focus on the quality and beauty of the chosen materials.

Large format, floor to ceiling stone effect porcelain tiling in the bathrooms creates a light and luxurious feel. Mirrored cabinets enhance the sense of light and space and the whole scheme is enhanced with recessed LED lighting.

A vibrant blue velvet sofa upholstered in Cocagne by Casamance creates a bold splash of colour in the open plan living area, which is beautifully complemented by the natural tan leather armchair.

A glamorous, rich blue feature wall creates depth and contrast. The interior design throughout the apartment is confident, youthful and fun. Pops of vivid colours in the bedrooms are tied together throughout the scheme with metallic gold accents.

In Bedroom two an acid yellow headboard with contrasting buttons, offset by bright purple lampshades creates a bold pop of brilliant colour.

In the Master Bedroom the Jigsaw Interior Architecture show home team designed a statement tan leather look headboard, flanked by two bespoke crittall style mirrors, creating a window pane effect. Shades of mustard and forest green give the space a fresh yet serene vitality.

A large Vertigo pendant light by Petite Friture hangs above the dining table creating a sculptural statement without dominating and effectively zones the dining area within the open plan living/kitchen/dining room.

The apartment’s balcony has been given a vibrant winter garden feel with a botanical print feature wall, potted palms and succulents in hanging terrariums and lush faux grass on the floor.
