Sustainable living at Ipsus08.
Ipsus Developments marries hip design with eco living, embodying a new approach to residential and mixed-used developments.
London has received a green injection in the last couple of years, making eco-friendly trendy and cost-cutting. Since launching in 2004, Ipsus Developments are now on their eighth project so far, Ipsus08. Located in the heart of Blackfriars on Rushworth Street, Ipsus08 is a boutique development comprised of just nine luxury apartments and penthouses perfect for those seeking sustainable living without having to sacrifice a central London address.
Their holistic approach to creating high-quality homes has ensured that the environment is considered and prioritised at every stage, delivering energy-efficient and environmentally responsible buildings. Key sustainability features include a green roof, made of a flowering sedum plant, alongside solar panels, and air source heat pumps for individually metered low-carbon heating and hot water.
The building’s exterior reflects the areas’ industrial roots and is a modern take on your traditional warehouse, with stone cladding and big bronze window frames. Inside, the luxurious open-plan rooms’ clean lines and free-flowing design provide a sense of continuity. All the one-and-two bedroom apartments and the three bedroom penthouses epitomise an understated sense of style carried out with a a minimalist aesthetic and a muted palette of soft grey walls and cotton white oak floors where a theme of bronze detailing runs through every corner.
Everything is about elegance and functionality, which is why Ipsus used high-quality materials to deck these apartments, from Italian stone floor tiles on the outside terrace and the anodised bronze aluminium window frames, to the stone-topped kitchen worktops by Modulnova and the internal recycling and waste bin system. The bedrooms are designed to be both a place for relaxation and a functional part of everyday life, with their distinct sleeping and dressing zones. The highlight of the dressing zone is the chic full-height wardrobe designed by Lema, a small Italian company specialising in high-quality home furnishings and known for combining elegance and intelligence in their designs.
All the apartments boast floor-to-ceiling windows with expansive London views of the capital’s ever-growing skyline. Step outside and you’re neighbouring Borough Market and the Tate Modern. Simply perfect.
