Queen’s Gambit inspiration revealed

A glimpse of the Queen’s Gambit inspired interior design for High Definition has been unveiled at the development’s show apartment.

Show apartment

Located at the High Definition sales and marketing suite in MediaCity, our show apartment showcases how interior designer at the scheme, Lou Tegerdine, took inspiration from the hit Netflix show to create stylish interiors for the development.

The colour scheme for the apartments combines the classic black and white of a chessboard, a feature especially prominent in the design of the bathrooms, with flashes of colour to create a vibrancy to the living spaces.

All the apartments at High Definition feature open-plan living and kitchen spaces and have floor-to-ceiling windows to flood the apartments with light and create an airy, spacious environment. High spec contemporary finishing has been used throughout and the bedrooms come fully equipped with built-in wardrobes.

The effortless cool of the development’s interiors also flows throughout its first-class communal spaces. 

Take, for example, the Club HD terrace lounge – a conservatory-style garden-facing area situated off High Definition’s podium terrace, which itself abridges the development’s two residential towers, Alto and Aria. Here, residents at High Definition can enjoy a cocktail bar complete with wine fridge, rich velvet curved retro sofas, leather reclining chairs, stools shaped like giant chess pieces and wooden tables with their own built-in wine bottle holders.

High Definition also provides residents with co-working spaces equipped with hyperoptic broadband and private meeting pods ideal for Teams or Zooms calls. 

And residents can also access a multi-function private room equipped with a flatscreen TV and surround sound speakers, perfect for larger business meetings during the day and social activities in the evening.

Overall, the stylish design and abundance of quality communal spaces make High Definition a truly exceptional living space for residents who want a high quality apartment located right at the centre of a cultural hub.

In the words of Lou Tegerdine herself:

“The bold black and white graphic that runs through the scheme is key and links perfectly with all things MediaCity. For the shared spaces, we have introduced shot of electric blue and for the apartments, a more subdued palette of monotones with moss green and clay tones.

“The kitchen units are simple with perfect matt finish doors in either graphite grey or cashmere. The greige interior bathroom tiles found on so many developments have been abandoned in favour of a more striking palette of patterned floor tiles mixed with oversized wall tiles.”
