Vorsprung durch Technik

For a century two opposing armies have faced-off. On one side, in formation, stand the functionalists. At their head, austere Louis Sullivan, pioneer of the skyscraper. “Form ever follows function,” his decree, “This is the law.” On the other, in bucolic disarray, lounge the aesthetes, dreamily distracted by the pursuit of elegance at any price.

But here, in Hillmarton Road, in the heart of the metropolis, there is a third way between urban function and pastoral picturesque.

Technik die begeistert

If Apple designed a flat, this would be it. Small and perfectly formed, as easy to navigate as it is easy on the eye, it's a harmonious whole. Yet it leads through technology: the iMac screen, the Bang & Olufsen hifi, the Loewe TV.

Far from a crime, ornament here is integral. Ducks abound in rubber and fabric. From the sunshine-yellow limited edition Coca-Cola bottles to the gnomic side table (by Philippe Stark, natürlich), all is design and design is all.

Spitzenleistung durch Innovation

No surprise the host is a designer. German-born, she is as devoted to fine engineering as she is to finery. And the space is ergonomically engineered. The glorious roof terrace is a suntrap. And when it’s chilly outside, curl up in the Moroccan snogging corner and surround yourself with the supremely functional form-hugging Missoni silk cushions.

The home sleeps three, two in the master bedroom and one in the spare room. Form and function continue their delicate pas-de-deux throughout the living and sleeping areas. The bold coloured bathroom has a fitted bath and power shower. While in the perfectly-formed kitchen – designed around the ultimate high spec fridge – the toaster pops with colour as well as toast.

Wir machen , dass es fährt

The neighbourhood has no less a blend of urban convenience and pastoral elegance. Green trees cast dark shadows across Victorian porches. Lined with pubs, bars and restaurants, The Cally, as locals know it, stretches from the hustle of Camden to Islington in the North. The area is also home to the Arsenal football team, and you’ll spot the Emirates stadium from the roof terrace.

Escaping is easy enough. Stroll down to Kings Cross St Pancras and you’re two hours from Paris. Or explore London. You’re 15 minutes from the centre by tube.

So there it is, the perfect answer to form vs. function: with great design, and a whole lot of care, you can have both. It’s just like another metropolitan architect told us all those years ago: the mediator between head and hand – between form and function – must be the heart.

Location

Starting off as a refuge from the plague and the noisome airs for City folk, Highbury was a rural retreat until the Victorians engulfed it in their building-boom megapolis.

Past the busy Highbury Corner, where Hugh Grant turned the air blue in the opening sequence of Four Weddings and a Funeral, lies the inviting grass expanse of Highbury Fields, flanked by prime property. At the top nestles Highbury Barn, a genteel parade of shops where locals stop off in the corner pub, carrying bags of Stinking Bishop from one of London’s prime cheese retailers, the pungent La Fromagerie, or heading to always-packed Italian restaurant Trullo on St Paul’s Road.

There are plenty of choice cultural experiences, like the acoustic Union Chapel on Upper Street (Kris Kristofferson, Martha Wainwright and Lloyd Cole play this season), the Estorick Collection on Canonbury Square harbouring Italian art and an authentic garden café, and the left-field independent theatre performances at the King’s Head, Hen & Chickens and Old Red Lion, reinforcing this area’s tradition of fun-searching free thinking.

 

Manager info

About: onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights. Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room. And there's service to match. Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.

Why Islington:
Starting off as a refuge from the plague and the noisome airs for City folk, Highbury was a rural retreat until the Victorians engulfed it in their building-boom megapolis. Past the busy Highbury Corner, where Hugh Grant turned the air blue in the opening sequence of Four Weddings and a Funeral, lies the inviting grass expanse of Highbury Fields, flanked by prime property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too. Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities. Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand. And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
