property novDiplomat discovers a masterpiece in 31-storey apartment building Canaletto 

Internationally acclaimed architect Professor Ben Van Berkel has designed yet another masterpiece: the 31-storey apartment building, Canaletto. Clean lines and floor-to-ceiling glazed windows house 190 spacious apartments. Even from a distance, Canaletto’s 360⁰ façade combines a gentle elegance with nature’s greenery so rarely seen in central London.

This soft, modern finish is a continuing theme, not just limited to the exterior, but also flows through the individual apartments. Residents have a myriad of amenities at their fingertips. The Canaletto’s concierge service offers everything you need from taking care of your housekeeping to arranging your personal home events.  The building also boasts a swimming pool, gym, restaurant, terrace club and cinema, as well as a tranquil spa.

Martin Goddard, the connoisseur behind the five-star St. Pancras Renaissance, is also involved. He’s used luxury materials like highly polished timbers and smooth marble to create a tidily finished environment. Berkel and Goddard are a magical combination creating a warm ambiance that is remarkably homely.  This is especially evident in the generously proportioned balconies that are an extension of the apartments, rather than something just added to the side of the building as an afterthought, as is so often the case.

Moreover, the central London location offers the opportunity to be immersed between four well-established districts: Islington, Clerkenwell, Shoreditch and the City.

The Beaumont Collection of three- bedroom apartments at the top of Canaletto on floors 24 to 28 start at £2.9 million. Over a half of the 190 apartments were snapped up within four months of the launch in May 2014.
