Martin Markcrow Architects has received planning permission for this penthouse apartment above a four-storey building in Wandsworth High Street, London.
Designed with structural engineer Atelier One, the new two-storey flat is to be clad in pre-weathered zinc panels and will be prefabricated off site. The 220m 2
penthouse will then be transported to London in five modules, where it will be craned into position in less than three days.
As well as plans to revamp the ground-floor Ferrari showroom, the scheme, in the heart of the Wandsworth Town Conservation Area, will also include some refurbishment work to the facade of the original four-storey 1920s building.
The project is expected to be completed in December 2005.
