'The Penthouse' is an immaculately designed penthouse apartment in the heart of Chelsea, with 360 degree views of London. The development took form as a rooftop extension, which was bespoke designed and built off-site, yet delivered as complete and fully tested modules. The Penthouse comprises of 9 individual modules in total and with key logistical planning, was installed by crane in one day and completed in 4 weeks. The Penthouse is a new build property and so benefits from direct security code operated lift access, comfort cooling throughout, the best soundproofing and the most up-to-date Control 4 AV system. A contemporary finish is combined with some beautiful Art Deco features to tie in to the nature of the already existing 1920's building. The quality of workmanship, high specification and the bespoke design enabled the property to achieve a record pound per square foot value for the locality, highlighting how off-site construction can raise the bar in the UK development industry.
