Beautifully transformed St Pancras penthouse apartment

St Pancras Penthouse Apartment-01-1 Kindesign

Interior architecture firm TG-Studio has transformed this three bedroom penthouse located in England’s famed St Pancras Chambers. The apartment is one of three penthouses in the 52 unit development by the Manhattan loft corporation. It covers the top three floors of the west tower of this famous London landmark. The client hired TG studio to transform the unit from the standard developer spec into a personal and luxurious home.

As the property is of highest public interest and the interiors listed by English Heritage as very significant, the floor plan had to be broadly maintained but all staircases were replaced. The Studio and client worked closely together removing all bathrooms, floor finishes, built in wardrobes and the kitchen. The master bedroom, which is located on the top floor, is now reached through a new staircase that turns around an oak clad storage room reached off the main entrance hall. The floor area on this level was enlarged and separated into a walk in wardrobe, finished in oak and sheep leather and personalized to the client’s needs. The master bedroom space is open plan but can be closed to the triple height living room by an electrical operated curtain.

The lower open floor plan is laid out as a relaxed kitchen zone, dining area and TV watching area. The TV area is located opposite the kitchen and balances in its elevation the open plan kitchen. The joinery accommodates the AV equipment and a visible library and is kept very white with arrabascato stone as a vertical feature behind the TV. The dining table is from Poliform as are the chairs; the sofa is from zanotti, the rug from the rug company.

The middle and lower floor (floor 4 & 5 of the building) are occupied by two levels of entertaining. A new staircase has been designed connecting both levels, featuring oak veneer, plain glass and wooden stringers painted in off white. The staircase consists of a bridge that connects to a library which is cantilevering the main part of the staircase. This library unit is the feature of the staircase and also forms the balustrade to one side. It offers storage for books, statues and other artifacts collected by the owner.

The penthouse gives access to two bedrooms with a dressing area and en-suite each a secondary entrance to the apartment and a guest WC and storage. The two en-suite bathrooms are located in two gothic towers of the building which gives them great views of the surrounding area and a triple ceiling height. They have been finished in Arrabascato marble and each feature a low hanging chandelier to play with the unusual ceiling height.
