Architect: McDonnell Associates
Type of works: bespoke refurbishment of chic, unique apartments.
The Rooflight Company has once again played an integral role in the refurbishment of chic, unique apartments in London. A bespoke 600 x 1,800mm rooflight automatically opens or closes depending on the weather conditions, allowing sunshine to illuminate the Kings Cross penthouse. The property, once owned by entrepreneur Sir Clive Sinclair, offers spectacular panoramic views of Londons population and most famous landmarks. Using a mixture of modern and traditional materials, architect McDonnell Associates has created a soothing contrast to the bedlam of King's Cross below, underlining the emphasis on living in splendour.
