Delivering high-end living

Located in the heart of Belgravia, London, Lateral comprises six bespoke apartments and communal areas fitted out to the highest standards. They are arguably London’s largest and most luxurious apartments.

The fashionable address, 21 Chesham Place offers a discerning residence in one of London’s most important conservation areas. The peaceful, elegant street with close proximity to the highlights of London life has traditionally been home to ambassadors and aristocrats.

The demolition of an existing Telephone Exchange and the retention of adjacent terrace buildings marked the beginning of works by Multiplex. Four levels of basement were then constructed within a secant piled retaining wall.

The new building’s exterior presents a contemporary interpretation of its neighbouring addresses, incorporating a richly layered composition of glass, stone and mesh.

Exceptional attention has been demonstrated throughout, with Multiplex’s selection of the finest materials and skilled craftsmen, amounting to the creation of a rare living environment. Natural materials including onyx, marble and choice hard woods have contributed to a refined interior scheme, with each apartment telling an individual story of style and finish.

The vast configurations of living spaces offer residents the opportunity to create their own imprint, with floor plans varying in size from 399 sq m to over 743 sq m.

State-of-the-art security and technology, replete with smart system wiring to control lighting, security, video entry, audio-visual, curtains and external doors have been provided for.

The internal temperature is controlled via advanced comfort cooling systems, with unique UV solar filters integrated into windows. Category five security systems featuring movement detectors, panic buttons, CCTV, access control and intruder alarms are a security feature of each apartment.

All apartments boast underground car parking facilities and private outdoor space, while two apartments feature the addition of indoor swimming pools.

Multiplex’s Project Lateral Apartments offer an unrivalled combination of distinct architecture and innovative design ideas creating a group of truly outstanding residences in one of London’s best locations.
