Full Details

Designed by award winning architect Amin Taha and his team at Groupwork, this 4 bed 4 bath lateral sub penthouse spans over 2,200 sqft (approx.). 15 Clerkenwell Close is arguably one of the area’s most unique and groundbreaking residential developments. Built in 2017, this building is a collection of 8 bespoke loft style apartments and a ground/lower floor office overlooking Clerkenwell Green & the famed Crypt. This development is a game changer in Clerkenwell with a RIBA London Award and RIBA National Award in 2018. Confidence in reintroducing structural stone to lower the embodied CO2 by 98% and celebrate its inherent beauty have paid off.

The design speaks volumes - from its wildly complex, loadbearing limestone exoskeleton with 250m year old fossils embedded in the 3 textured surfaces caused by varying cutting methods to the internal communal glass lift that makes traveling between floors a journey through an intentional mix of wooden and industrial finishes an immersive experience rather than a simple mode of transport.

Featuring floor to ceiling windows in the main living and dining room, the huge panes of glass cased in an industrial finished metal compound offer views to not only the roof tops of Clerkenwell and Farringdon but also the Green and famed Crypt itself. A large master bedroom is situated at a far southerly quarter of the space with en suite bathroom featuring a Japanese bath. Along one side of the entrance hall are 3 bathrooms, one with optional ensuite and marble bath. A further 3 double bedrooms, with opening walls and moveable bookshelf give the option and flexibility to create even more open plan living, all benefiting from the beautiful views over trees towards the Church.

This purely lateral space on the 4th floor is finished to a unique specification rarely seen in modern buildings today, including a range of exposed concrete surfaces from the polished floors to Barbican-esque columns and textured sandblasted ceilings. With a mix of exposed brickwork and handcrafted timber work on the concealed doors and windows, plus ornate bespoke marble bathroom suites and kitchens designed by the architects, the finish and style is unlike any other new development in Clerkenwell.

Clerkenwell Close is a peaceful oasis in The City and just a short walk from Farringdon Station (Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and Circle Line, National Rail plus the Elizabeth line). With the West End a stroll away and St Pauls along with the River Thames to the south, this location is arguably one of Clerkenwell finest.
