Notting Hill Penthouse

The new Penthouse is situated on the top of two adjacent 1930s apartment blocks in London’s Notting Hill. The Brief asked for a breathtaking open living space that would maximise the available views and be a showcase for cutting edge technology.

A new storey was added to each block, one containing a large, open plan living space with dining room and kitchen and the other the bedrooms. A glass bridge connects the two spaces at high level and a new glazed lift shaft provides private access from a new landscaped courtyard.

The construction consists of a lightweight steel frame incorporating visible laser-cut curved stainless steel columns to the perimeter. Custom-made, curved double-glazed units provide a frameless envelope. Several panels are hydraulically activated to provide full-height ‘gull-wing’ openings. The linking bridge is formed entirely from structural glass.

The internal fittings include a moulded GRP coving providing hidden light fixtures and a new stair formed from reclaimed railway sleepers and hidden LED strips.
