A London Penthouse with City Views

How do you fancy a 240 m2 penthouse, with a spectacular open-plan living space on the upper floor and stunning views over the Thames? 

This penthouse is arranged over the top two floors of a prominent high-rise residential development, originally designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, and now dramatically reconfigured by FORMstudio.

The former arrangement ignored the spatial potential offered by the distinctive, soaring wing roof and the spectacular wrap-around views over the river and to the City beyond. Now, from the entrance, a view of the river draws the visitor forward into a double height space, from which an elegantly detailed stairway leads upward, revealing the impressively spacious open-plan dining and living area above.

On the lower level, a spectacular river-facing master bedroom suite, includes a floor-to ceiling glazed oriel window cantilevered out over the water and equipped with a rotating Citterio-designed circular sofa, to exploit the Canaletto-like panoramic view. There are also two further bedroom suites.

The generous upper floor space features areas for sitting, dining/cooking and working without the need for dividing walls. The raised level of this living space has dramatically improved the river view from a sitting position and created access to the beautiful terrace.

We think we could be very happy here. Who wants to be roomies?
