Now, we knew Roman House's location and building design. You may have one question: How is the interiors? The interiors have been designed by space planners and interior designers The Manser Practise, to reflect the area's classical heritage. Natural materials have been used to create stylish and timeless surroundings. Each apartment offers the latest in home technology systems, allowing residents to control the heating, lighting and audio remotely as well as access to a 24-hr concierge and state-of-the-art security systems.
There will be outdoor space for residents, including the St Alphage public gardens which are adjacent to Roman House, resident's only gymnasium in the basement. Moreover, there are Juliette balconies and private terraces in most of the apartments. In the future, one of 90 secure bicyle spaces will be created for residents' usage!
