A crisp contemporary aesthetic transforms this Victorian penthouse into a luxurious, open and light 5 bedroom apartment in the heart of Chelsea. The project was a complete rebuild of a topfloor apartment that lost its grand roof during the bombings of world war II. Lengthy discussions with planners lead to a successful planning application for rebuilding the original roof in all its glory a creating a beautiful terrace that helps flood light into the main living space.
The living space located on both levels and incorporating a terrace is interwoven and connected both physically and visually. A subtle and sophisticated palette of materials has completely transformed this once dark and deep apartment.
A 3D solid timber wall surface, weathered steel, cold rolled black steel, solid stone in the living, dining and kitchen sets the tone for the remainder of the apartment where each of the private rooms and bathrooms gets a strand of this material palette.
