From '60s Offices to Luxury Duplexes

ORIGINATE as Architects

These three duplex apartments were formed from the top floors of a 1960s office building near St James’s Square.

Each unit cleverly interlocks with the next, allowing the formation of double height spaces in all apartments incorporating new bronze and oak staircases. A new floor was constructed on top of the building, housing a dramatic penthouse with large terraces overlooking central London.

The apartments were named after the families that were historically associated with this site: the Timbrell is the four-bedroom flat, the Asgill is the three-bedroom and the Albany is a two-bedroomed apartment.

All apartments were furnished and styled by Originate for rental and were let almost immediately after completion.
