This impressive penthouse by renowned British architect and Stirling-winner David Chipperfield offers luxurious city living in central Londons’ Clerkenwell district. Simultaneously sleek and welcoming, the home also boasts extensive outdoor space with skyline views—ideal for entertaining.

Taking its cues from Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House in Illinois, the three-bedroom 2,742-square-foot duplex features a nearly-80-foot-long glazed pavilion on the upper floor comprising a living room, kitchen and dining area, and a formal reception with access to a wrap-around terrace and stairs leading to a larger, panoramic rooftop. Heated granite floors, a bespoke granite kitchen counter, and a smart lighting system lend heft to the otherwise bright and airy space.

Three bedrooms, two baths, and generous storage make up the lower floor. Wood paneling and built-in closets can be found throughout the entire apartment, which also features a Bang & Olufsen entertainment system. Located within a building redesigned by the architect himself, the residence is accessed by a key-operated elevator.

It is available for £3,250,000, or approximately $3,952,000, from The Modern House. Have a look below.
