Comprising of 108 premium one, two and three bedroom apartments, Excelsior is a city centre haven that’s ideal for those wanting to live and work in the city.

UTH - INTERIOR DESIGN STUDIO Architects, have taken design inspiration from the site’s unique heritage. Excelsior stands on the site of what was once the largest printing and bookbinding works in the UK. The unique interior design looks to reinterpret the architectural history of the site and the surrounding historic area.

At a time when standardised residential developments are rising fast, Excelsior breaks the mould by presenting an exciting and forward-thinking approach to residential living. The design from UTH Studio encapsulates the modern attitude and characteristics of the city, whilst taking inspiration from the building’s ‘inky’ history to form an aesthetic unique to Excelsior.

The open-plan apartments are looded with natural light with loor-to-ceiling windows and the stunning rooftop gardens offer a tranquil place to enjoy the skyline.

Wide plank wood effect looring offers a blank canvas for any style of furniture, while LV spotlights create the perfect ambience. Equipped with future-proofed media and ultrafast broadband connections, occupiers have a choice of suppliers, so they can set their new home up however they choose.

Sleek and modern, each apartment has a state-of-the-art kitchen and entertaining space. Fully-itted with premium quality appliances; every detail has been considered, with soft-close drawers, concealed lighting and solid worktops.
