Ashberg House is a striking new residential property created by leading design studio, Morpheus London. Situated on Cathcart Road in the heart of Chelsea, Central London, the property spans nearly 9,000 sq ft and is arranged over five floors.
The home takes its name and inspiration from the famous Ashberg diamond, an amber-coloured cushioncut diamond once included in the Russian Crown Jewels. The design team, headed up by Alex Isaac, former Creative Director of Linley, has taken influence from this extraordinary stone, not least in its glass architectural aesthetic and faceted interior details, but also the precise and exacting construction methods employed.
The residence is designed in a modern vernacular to include a plethora of glass, black basalt and bronze details. The building elevations are a provocative counterpoint to Chelsea’s traditional brick and stucco villas, boldly challenging the status quo.
