Two-storey apartment interior within a converted 1960s office building in central London

Accommodation is arranged across two floors. The upper level is open-plan, providing an office and living room that opens on to a roof terrace with rooftop views of London.

The lower level accommodates a master bedroom, separate his-and-hers dressing rooms and bathrooms, a wine cellar, kitchen and dining room.

Bathroom walls are lined with full-height sheets of white back-painted glass and each bathroom features a different finish. Most noteworthy is the ‘her’ bathroom, which features an unusual glass laminate that incorporates an interlayer of shattered glass backed with mirror.
