Marylebone Penthouse

Patalab Architecture as Architects

Marylebone Penthouse is located on top floor of a 5-storey early 1900’s residential building in the heart of Marylebone Village in central London. Carefully nurtured by The Howard de Walden Estate and just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, the area is one of the capital’s most distinctive and fashionable destinations. Previously split into two smaller apartments the project presented an opportunity to create a unique penthouse, featuring generous outdoor spaces including a roof terrace with stunning views across London.

Located behind the original façade, major structural alterations were carried out to create an open internal arrangement with a large living room, a double-storey high kitchen, two bedrooms, and ancillary spaces. A lift provides direct access to the central entrance hall which is lid by a large skylight. The master bedroom opens onto a balcony whilst an internal staircase connects the living room with the roof terrace above.

The roof terrace has been designed as an outdoor living room. Its central focal point is a fully equipped kitchen with integrated barbecue. Built-in planters and a pergola structure with retractable roof and screens around the seating area provide privacy.

Special attention has been given to the selection of materials to create a raw but warm interior. A honey coloured Oak floor laid in all rooms of the apartment acts as a continuous background. It is contrasted by dark stained Oak doors with bronze ironmongery, concrete panelled walls in the entrance hall and exposed brickwork in the kitchen.

Master bathroom and dressing room feature waxed mild steel elements, bush hammered lava stone and black MDF. To complement the interiors and to provide ample storage finely detailed built-in furniture has been installed throughout the apartment. In the living room a bookshelf in dark stained Oak, accommodating a fireplace with concrete surround turns into the staircase that leads up to the roof terrace.
