Penthouses near Old Street

← View all


In the heart of the city,  above an existing industrial Victorian warehouse conversion, we were instructed to design two three storey penthouses with roof gardens.  An exposed south facing street facade, led to designing a louvered suspended metal facade, with a simple shading and cooling strategy, as well enabling secret gardens to be housed behind. The scheme has since reduced in scale to a simple fifth floor extension to the two flats, designed around the striking views from the fifth floor and a new feature industrial style, metal staircase.
