Penthouse Apartments Overview
At the apex of One Park Drive, with an interior specification realised by architects Herzog & de Meuron and interior design and art direction by Design Research Studio, the penthouses offer a new kind of elevated living. Extensive double-height spaces, unexpected courtyard gardens and sculptural architectural interventions create a unique and rich living experience filled with materiality, beauty and narrative.
One Park Drive
The penthouse levels at One Park Drive are on the 56th floor with each duplex apartment containing lower and upper levels as well as dramatic double-height spaces. Each penthouse has a unique floorplan and configuration of rooms designed to maximise their aspect and position within the building. The interiors of every apartment have been carefully designed to create a seamless flow from one space into another without corridors or dead spaces, meaning residents will find every area useable and liveable.
The upper and lower floors are connected by a spiral concrete staircase which acts as a sculptural centrepiece to each apartment. Every penthouse has a ‘pocket’ courtyard garden too: These internal, wood-lined, spaces punctuate the top level of the building, opening up the interior to the outdoors and offering privileged access to the sky and the elements.
A bespoke double-height kitchen in each apartment takes full advantage of the expansive view across Canary Wharf and beyond. Fully integrated Gaggenau appliances, beautifully detailed oak carpentry and a central kitchen island, finished with a white Lasa Marmo marble countertop, complete these considered spaces. The architectural design of the penthouse bathrooms is equally thoughtful; these spaces are pared back, with beautifully curved walls finished in a warm, polished Moroccan tadelakt plaster. A number of the apartment bathrooms open up directly onto courtyard gardens. The One Park Drive penthouses are filled with interior features that demonstrate immense attention to detail, combining functionality with living experiences that both entirely unexpected on the 56th floor and also comfortingly familiar.
“Normally in a penthouse you are always looking outward. Here, we are also suggesting you look inward.” – John O’Mara, Herzog & de Meuron
