Kempton House - Highgate
We were appointed to design and project manage this luxurious penthouse in Highgate. Set within a secluded canopy of trees this zinc clad roof extension with glazed balustrades around an incredible roof terrace will provide incredible views across London.
The success of Kempton House depended on two things – working carefully within the Grade II listed building and achieving an outstanding interior design. We have extensive experience of working with listed buildings, and sensitivley incorporating modern designs into the project.
During the construction process we had to create a secondary roof structure that spanned from the structural walls below. Our award winning roofing specialist carefully installed the new roof structure and composite panels to the tightest of tolerances.
Internally, under floor heating was installed between the two roof structures and a new timber floor installed above. The large roof light was installed that allows light to flood the double height space transforming the existing entrance and lifting experience within the existing lower bedrooms.
"Locksley Architects really helped us out when we were in difficulty. Not only are they extremely knowledgeable about both the architectural and contractual aspects of the business, but they also seem to have a great natural sense for what the client is looking to do. They were a pleasure to work with throughout, and I would strongly recommend Locksley Architects to anyone looking for architectural design or construction management." - Alan Lucas
