Angel O’Donnell’s interiors celebrate the striking architecture of Amory Tower, Canary Wharf. After studying the building’s acute angles, fin-like strips and glistening metal, they thought of ways of replicating these details in fluted wood, brass inlays and polished surfaces.

Such architectural cues abound in the living room, which features a bespoke shelving unit comprising of staggered lines and intersecting brass strips. These features echo the building’s vertical fins, while the glinting metal adds a lustrous finish to the soft grey wood. For an added surprise, a specially commissioned acrylic slides across the shelves to reveal a hidden bar, replete with cocktail shaker and cut-glass goblets.

Architectural cues can be found in the principal bedroom, too. Here, handcrafted pendant lights, constructed from a series of black metal fins, accompany a fully upholstered wall of variable-width panels and polished brass inlay. These details, while subtle, pay homage to the building’s arresting exterior.
