Luxury Paddington Penthouse, London

Renowned London architects and designers SHH have completed the Paddington Penthouse project. The stunning luxury penthouse can be found in London, England.

After purchasing the 14th and 15th floors of a new development adjacent to Paddington Basin, together with a roof terrace, the private owner of the empty shell duplex space commissioned the London architects and designers to transform it into a luxurious, cool and contemporary London penthouse, to serve as a pied-à-terre for himself and his extended family.  The resulting stylish and unique residence, the largest in the development and offering spectacular views over the city, is an oasis of calm, in considered contrast to its bustling, urban setting – just a short walk from Edgware Road.

The brief from the client was for the space to function effectively as a bespoke boutique hotel, so that any family member could stay in any of the five bedrooms at any time, whilst the differing functions each individual might also require from the penthouse were all to be subtly incorporated, without the overall space feeling disjointed.  Originally two separate properties, the 14th and 15th floor apartments were merged to create the a contemporary London penthouse via the installation of a new central staircase, creating a single residence of approximately 5,000sqft, including external terraces.
