Flow Penthouse, Kensington, London, 2019

Flow Penthouse is architect apartment renovation in Kensington. As architects we were really excited about working on this 3-bedroom family penthouse apartment. Completed in 2019 for a private client, this project involved the conversion of a former rooftop plant room into a luxurious penthouse apartment that celebrates the wonderful curves of the building’s form.

Simple Material Palette

We used a simple palette of oak flooring and off-white painted walls to allow a clean reading of the flowing curves of the building.

In the kitchens and bathrooms, we used polished plaster finishes to further embrace these flowing curved lines. This polished plaster adds a calmness and softness to these spaces.

From Plant Room to Penthouse

Originally a kidney-shaped plant-room at the top of an existing apartment building, the challenge of this project was to transform the space into a flowing open-plan penthouse apartment. We saw this an opportunity to create really interesting spaces that easily flow together and enjoy 360-degree views of the leafy treetops of Kensington in London.

Clever Room Dividers

The form of the floor plan allowed us to create an additional bedroom space or enclosed study through the use of a full-width bi-folding room divider.
