Designed by David Howell Design the luxurious penthouse is spread across three spacious levels and is nestled on top of a building with an original cast iron façade – an iconic image in itself!
This carried out by Klopf Architecture is another wonderful example of homeowners and architects coming together to restore these masterpieces to their original beauty even while infusing contemporary charm.
A sculptural staircase connects the three floors with the kitchen dining area and living space being housed on the ground level and a gorgeous study and wraparound terrace on the third floor.
The floor plan inside was revamped removing unnecessary partitions and creating more room for the new entry living area and other public spaces. The color scheme is neutral with a white backdrop being energized by exposed wooden ceiling beams and rustic surfaces that usher in ample visual and textural contrast.
Despite the lack of bold colors and vivacious prints the polished London residence still exudes a sense of inviting radiance thanks to the beautiful décor and the wonderful use of stacked wood to add textural contrast.
It is vertical Kayu Batu siding and white plastered balconies that refresh the façade of the house and give it a smart yet distinct new look. On the inside a white backdrop coupled with lovely mahogany surfaces ensures that the interior is both minimal and inviting.
The original barn-style roof structure was retained to preserve the traditional vibe while the interior is draped in light gray neutral hues and filled with comfy modern décor to present a contrasting picture. Even the ceiling with its cool white plaster and beeswax finish adds to the polished appeal while large windows bring the scenic outdoors inside.
