Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Designed by the Stirling Prize-winning architect David Chipperfield, this remarkable three-bedroom penthouse offers extensive roof terracing, garage parking, huge amounts of natural light and a central Clerkenwell location.

Internal accommodation measures approximately 2,742 sq ft, and is arranged over the third and fourth floors.

The design of the apartment is heavily influenced by Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House. The upper floor is a spectacular Miesian pavilion that’s almost 80ft long and is divided into different zones: a living area with glazing on three sides, a central kitchen / dining area, and a more formal reception room that can be screened off with sliding walls. There is also a cloakroom and utility room concealed behind the kitchen. The upper floor is fitted with granite flooring, a bespoke granite kitchen counter, under-floor heating and a programmable Lutron lighting system.

The glazed doors of the reception room slide back to reveal a south-facing roof terrace, which also wraps around the side of the space. There are stairs up to a further large roof terrace on top of the building, with 360-degree panoramic views.

The lower floor contains three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite), a large hallway and extensive under-stairs storage space. The bedrooms are triple-glazed and air-conditioned. The entire apartment is fitted with a Bang & Olufsen sound and televisual system.

It has a secure garage, and an additional off-street parking space in a private gated service road accessible from Berry Street and Clerkenwell Road.

The apartment forms part of a building that was redesigned in its entirety by David Chipperfield in 2000. It contains a total of 12 flats, as well as a retail space (the Vitra showroom) on the ground floor. This flat is the largest in the building and is the only duplex. It is accessed via a key-operated lift from the ground floor. Within the last five years, the building has been decorated externally and internally, and the lift has been reconditioned.

David Chipperfield worked at the practices of Douglas Stephen, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster, before founding his eponymous practice in 1984. The firm now has offices in London, Berlin and Milan. It was awarded the prestigious Stirling Prize in 2007 for its Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach, Germany, and was shortlisted in the same year for the America’s Cup Building in Valencia. In 2004, Chipperfield himself was appointed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) for services to architecture.

Berry Street is located just off Clerkenwell Road. Barbican Underground station is less than 300m away, and nearby Farringdon forms part of the new Crossrail project, completing in 2018. Local amenities include Exmouth Market, Shoreditch and Hoxton, with their excellent restaurants and nightlife; the rapidly developing Old Street ‘Silicon’ Roundabout; and the Barbican, with its outstanding centre for the arts. London’s financial district is a short walk away to the south.
