Apartments go on sale at luxury Banda-designed riverside scheme

All 28 units at Third i’s The Doulton will have direct views over the Thames
and access to ‘first-class’ amenities.

Australian developer Third.i has pushed the button on sales at The Doulton, its new high-end endeavour on London’s Albert Embankment.

28 luxury apartments with spectacular views of the Houses of Parliament are due to be delivered by the end of 2025, following the firm’s acquisition of the former Royal Doulton manufacturing site over the summer.

Edo Mapelli Mozzi’s Banda has been brought in to work on the interior design and architecture, and marketing materials promise “a new standard of luxury waterside living”, with homes that “redefine intimate opulence”.

The mix of units will include three lateral whole floor penthouses with 360-degree views, 25 two- and three- bed apartments, and there will be eighteen parking spaces and 3,312 sq ft of commercial space. The offering will include a set of “five-star” health & wellness facilities, along with a lounge area, meeting room, workspace, concierge desk and communal terrace.

Savills has been instructed to handle global sales, and an appointment-only marketing suite is now up and running; prices start from £3.95mn.

Third.i was founded in Sydney 20 years ago and has been operating in London for the last five years. The portfolio also includes Graphite Square, a forthcoming mixed-use scheme in Vauxhall.

Luke Berry, Co-Founder of Third.i: “The Albert Embankment is a truly unique place to live. With the river as your backdrop and the city at your feet, The Doulton presents a new perspective of waterside living in London, where the views take centre stage. Each residence boasts expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, framing London’s famous landmarks in a panorama that will forever remain unspoilt. It’s not just about world-class views however, as every aspect of life at The Doulton has been designed to give residents an exceptional living experience and home like no other, and home like no other, including the services and
panorama that will forever remain unspoilt. It’s not just about world-class views however, as every aspect of life at The Doulton has been designed to give residents an exceptional living experience and home like no other, including the services and amenities. Meticulously designed by renowned interior design studio Banda, every detail and specification promise uncompromising luxury. We are thrilled to be working with them in bringing this project to life and can’t wait to officially open its doors to residents when
completed”

Richard Eden, Head of Architecture and Technical at Banda: “We have designed the apartment and Penthouse layouts to offer generous open-plan living, kitchen and dining spaces that directly engage with the expansive riverside views. The kitchens have been conceived not only as highly functional working zones but heart of the home, with the island as the focus of the space. The pared-back design
of the islands contrasts soft, curved volumes with rectilinear forms whilst character and warmth are
added by natural materials that are rich in detail. This carefully considered also as the beating approach embodies the ‘Design for Living’ ethos that underpins all Banda designs and allows the differing open-plan spaces to seamlessly work as one. All apartments will benefit from a high level of appliance specification that will be amongst the best in class. Bespoke joinery and marble worktops will be complimented by well- established market leaders including Gaggenau and Sub-Zero, with full-height wine fridges to the penthouse as a standard offering. Banda Design Studio welcomes the opportunity to be part of the team that is bringing The Doulton to life. Taking all that we know from our extensive experience creating unique properties in Prime Central London and across the globe, the vision for the interior design of The Doulton will offer buyers something truly unique. Commissioned to provide a coherent aesthetic language for the apartments, wellness facilities and communal lobby spaces, we aim to provide the owners with a curated ‘world’ to inhabit that is luxurious but not overly styled; a beautifully resolved and thoughtful piece of holistic design.”

Genevieve Mayoh, from global selling agent, Savills: “The pull of London as a global city remains strong and we have seen international buyers return to the Prime London market. The limited pipeline for high profile new build schemes means they continue to be in demand to those international and domestic buyers looking for the best in class. The Doulton, with only 28 apartments and its position on the south bank of the Thames is a welcome addition to London’s riverside. The apartments’ extraordinary ‘postcard’ views across to the Palace of Westminster, the interiors by Banda and the first-class views across to the Palace of Westminster, the interiors by Banda and the first-class amenities will make The Doulton a very special place to call home.”
