An eclectic mix of the familiar and the unexpected in London
A strange mixture of familiarity and surprise grips the residents the moment they enter The Robinson. We knew from the start that The Robinson would never be traditional. With the graduate as our inspiration, we took the residents out of the rabbit hole to create their own wonderland. From the common areas to the apartments themselves, we blended familiarity and comfort with quirkiness and polite disrespect. This sense of contradiction is at the core of Robinson’s design concept,” The team gets stuck in Fossey Arora.
The Robinson contains a broad and eclectic mix of social spaces. The largest of the rooftop terraces houses a row of sunbeds and is rumored to be the tallest in London at 50 metres, while plants in brightly painted oil casks and an orange-shaped juice bar add liveliness.
