Royal Mint Gardens Design

Published by Nicholas Sunderland Interiors -


We were commissioned to design a unique reception area for a multi-purpose block of residences by Tower Bridge, Royal Mint Gardens.  It was to be a Grand Reception allowing residents and guests to feel as if they are in a luxury 6 star hotel with all services and amenities that it conveys.

It was a unique development underway in view of the iconic Tower Bridge with access to central London in a matter of minutes. The individual apartments with onsite Spa, Gym pool and treatment rooms is further complemented by a private games room and lounge. Being a Malaysian developer the design had to be on Feng Shui Principals, which is very important to them. The style finishes and overall layout were dictated by the oriental system with a Western Influence,  Nicholas was trained in Feng Shui  in the Far East as well as London. He helped develop and launch Feng Shui For Modern Living in the UK in the late 90s, early 20s, an interior design magazine for the West.

Elements in this design featured polished plaster walls, brass inlaid floor direction layers, silver inlay lift doors against rich purple leather. The giant feature lights in blown crystal with multi colours offset the living trees by the reception desk, white marble against a backdrop of gold leaf inlaid plaster and angel lights floating above. The seating allowed a relaxing waiting area within which were lit an iridescent silver and gold globe complementing the tree pots and curves of the desk. The staircase was a web of glass and silver spiralling through the levels, reflecting the wave walls in earth and representing continuous movement.

Seating areas where guests could wait for friends were set out in a formal but relaxed way with these bespoke lighting features and water displays creating an ambience from a hectic life outside. In the UK luxury market these residential complexes elevate the residents to another level of luxury, adding to revenue above and beyond.

NSI design are available to create these 6 star luxury receptions for your complex as well as more modest spaces for the lower market whilst still creating a sense of luxury enabling a faster sale and wow factor as you enter the building.
