You can not have a home closer to the clouds…
The luxury interior design of the most prestigious rooms in The Shangri-La at the Shard would be a challenge for anyone, given the nature of the building with its sloping structural pillars and sophisticated use of glazing panels that reflect sunlight and the sky above. The Shard for a designer is a living vertical city, changing according to weather and seasons…But for FM Architettura d’Interni there is no greater joy than to challenge our imagination and work in an incredible multicultural team!
We wanted to create a home feeling for guests, a cozy “nest” inside a modern architectural monument. During all the project, FM Architettura d’Interni tried to keep the idea of the stroboscopic view of London. The Shangri-La Suites we designed have to be high-end technological and transmit the beauty and serenity at the same time.
Conjuring the sense of Oriental elegance, FM Architettura d’Interni designers created a fusion of refined materials, such as marble and hand-made silk, that are blended with contemporary light wood to complete the urban cityscape.
Custom-made furniture and high-grade silk wallpaper in a refined palette of champagne, citrine and bronze, – all was specially designed by Francesca Muzio, Maria-Silvia Orlandini and made by a team of highly skilled italian craftsmen.
Within all the prestigious Shangri- La Suites, the difference is in the be-spoken details: ink wash of geese motif derived from a famous tale of Chinese calligraphy; warm wood color featuring and precious materials such as: horn, bronze, bamboo and woven leather details.
FM Architettura d’Interni always takes cared of every detail. Each of the signature suite have its own unique layout, although all combine the formal elegance of Shangri – La’s Asian heritage with the innovation of The Shard’s architecture through a richness of precious details and an expanse of natural light.
Discerning travelers will enjoy world-class service amidst tranquil surroundings, coupled with inspirational architecture and design.
