This superior two-bedroom penthouse in Clerkenwell, London has extensive private terracing with fine views, underground parking, and direct lift access. It forms part of the Dance Square development designed by London-based DGA Architects.

Description by DGA Architects and The Modern House: The apartment has a living wing and a sleeping wing, which are bisected by a dramatic entrance atrium. Arriving via the lift and a high-security door, the visitor is presented with views over rooftops and a bespoke water feature through full-height sliding glazed doors. The quality of the materials is immediately evident, with a poured resin floor and a ceiling clad in Dinesen timber.
