Inside the Luxurious David Chipperfield-Designed London Penthouses


London’s real estate landscape has been graced with a touch of architectural brilliance in the form of two exquisite penthouses. Situated side by side within a midcentury modern warehouse on Berry Street, these stunning properties have been designed by the world-renowned British architect, David Chipperfield. With a blend of contemporary taste and modern advancement, these penthouses have left an impressive mark on the market.

These great penthouses are not only homes; they are the expression of the architect’s creative vision. David Chipperfield’s transformation of a midcentury modern warehouse into a residential masterpiece in 2000 has set the stage for these exclusive properties. Each penthouse has been thoughtfully designed to cater to the discerning tastes of modern homeowners, offering both individuality and the potential for a grand fusion.

The allure of these penthouses lies in their individuality and the potential to create a larger, seamless living space. The four-bedroom duplex, priced at £4.5 million (approximately $5.7 million), stands as a pinnacle of luxury living. Spanning over 2,635 square feet with an additional 1,943 square feet of outdoor space provides great space. It draws inspiration from the iconic Farnsworth House in Illinois, showcasing Chipperfield’s affinity for timeless design.

The upper floor of the duplex encompasses a roof terrace with captivating city views, a cozy living room adorned with a fireplace, an airy dining room, and a custom chef’s kitchen. The primary suite, complete with a refurbished ensuite bath, walk-in closet, and private balcony, exudes opulence and comfort.

A staircase leads to the lower level, where three additional bedrooms, two bathrooms, a utility room, and ample storage space await. 

The adjacent three-bedroom penthouse, with a price tag of £2.3 million (roughly $2.9 million), boasts its distinct charm. This penthouse is encompassing 1,489 square feet of interior space and an impressive 1,294 square feet of outdoor space. Architectural skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows flood the interiors with natural light, while a custom-built kitchen with a breakfast bar becomes the heart of the home.

Beyond their allure, these penthouses hold the promise of a grand fusion. While they can be purchased separately, the potential for a united, expansive living space is tantalizing. The agent, Nick Verdi, Head of Savills Clerkenwell, highlights this potential and the scope for creating a single extraordinary property with the necessary consent.

In the heart of London, these David Chipperfield-designed penthouses redefine luxury living. With their meticulously crafted interiors, expansive outdoor spaces, and the potential for a grand fusion, they offer a lifestyle that balances sophistication with comfort.
