The award-winning Penthouse at Westlegate Tower, Norwich is the tallest residential building within the city centre walls, boasting spectacular views towards many landmark buildings such as Norwich Castle.
The interior has been designed to complement the view from the room height glazed panels using natural materials and a variety of textures.
The primary aim was to create an apartment for the client that was in keeping with the country interior he had previously enjoyed, while gently evolving the style to suit the contemporary building and city lifestyle.
The design process involved researching the heritage of the building and using the architectural style as a design influence.
The sky lounge is positioned on the top floor of the tower and has been designed to reflect the style of a ski lodge. It gives the opportunity to imagine you could be anywhere, as all you can see from the lodge is the sky.

"Working with Lanassir Lawes and the entire Swank Interiors team was really easy and stressless. I would have had no idea how to start or manage such a project.
Lanassir listened and understood my need to make the apartment functional, contemporary and cosy. Using innovative space-saving ideas she increased the apartment’s sleeping capacity from five to seven, added an additional ‘hidden’ kitchen and a lodge styled sky lounge for year round entertaining!
Her team managed the entire project from design, storyboarding, fabric selection, commissioning and installation on budget and on time. They liaised with decorators and tradesmen to transform the colour pallette from basic to sumptuous, lighting from bland to spectacular and ordinary to award-winning! I would most definitely use Lanassir at Swank Interiors for any future projects of my own and highly recommend her to others."
