London life can’t be forgotten for long however, thanks to the impressive panorama taken in by floor-to-ceiling windows. Designer Martin Goddard comments, ‘the apartments have very simple clean lines but use luxury materials such as highly polished timbers and marbles to create a mid-century feel with classic features’.

Externally, Canaletto has an intricate architecture – one which is unusually detailed for a residential block. Clusters of adjacent apartments are grouped together with textured aluminium rims, creating clouds of ‘neighbourhoods’, distinguished only by clean glass terraces. Internally, a communal swimming pool, gym, private screening room and bespoke concierge service add to the neighbourly atmosphere.
