Claridge completes £5.2m rooftop apartment scheme

  • 1 Comment

Claridge Architects has unveiled this 14-home scheme on a rooftop in Queens Park, North West London


The £5.2 million apartment scheme sits above a three-storey Art Deco building and is stepped back from the edge of the existing roofline.

The two-storey extension provides 1,394m2 of space within a glass and onyx-stained hardwood-clad addition.

Architect Marcus Claridge, commented: ‘With space at a premium in London, existing buildings need to be part of the response to that challenge. Increasingly, we are looking upwards for that space.The design of the Queens Park Penthouses has been carefully considered to sit comfortably and subtly in this unique building in a creative London neighbourhood while also maximising light, space and views for those who will live there.’

  • Onyx-stained hardwood cladding sounds interesting, surely worth a photograph - and doesn't this size of addition on the roof of a relatively small building deserve a brief description of the structural design?, as well as plans that are legible?
    Come on AJ, you can do better than this.
