Developer Almacantar has unveiled the top floor penthouse at Centre Point, which is on sale for a remarkable £55 million. The property is the final element of Almacantar's transformation of the former office tower into a residential building.

The enormous 7,285 sq ft duplex penthouse spans the entirety of the 33rd and 34th floors of the skyscraper, making it the highest penthouse of its kind in the West End. The apartment also features a generous outdoor area, with over 1,889 sq ft of London’s only residential full wrap-around  terrace.

The Grade II listed residence offers undisturbed and protected 360-degree views across  London and complete privacy for its owner, immersing them in the heart of the city whilst observing it from above.

Architects Conran and Partners are behind the restoration of the iconric Brutalist building, which towers over the junction of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road. The structure has retained its original features, such as the iconic concrete honeycomb façade and large scale lettering spelling out the building’s name. The open plan penthouse allows residents to move and live freely between all areas, with the floor-to-ceiling windows flooding the space with natural light from sunrise to sunset. 

Almacantar collaborated with renowned British interior design house Spinocchia Freund to dress the apartment, working closely with Founder and Creative Director Brigitta Spinocchia Freund, who drew inspiration from the worlds of art, fashion and music and commissioned designers such as Alice Temperley and Pierre Frey to design elegant, bespoke homeware fabrics throughout.

Spinocchia Freund also collaborated with Patrick Morey-Burrows, art advisor and founder of Art.Source, to select and commission original pieces of art by some of the world’s most recognisable contemporary artists including Richard Long, Richard Wentworth, Eva Menz, Keita Miyazaki, Jeppe Hein and Bram Bogart.

The major spaces inside the penthouse include a large bar, dining room, cinema, music room, and a secret wine tasting room, making it the perfect residence for contemporary living and entertaining.  

The expansive double-height bar area, seating 24 people, is positioned to enjoy sunsets over west London. The centrepiece of this space is a large-scale artwork by Turner Prize winner Richard Long, created in situ.

The principal suite is comprised of a bedroom, dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The floor to ceiling windows and sliding door offer direct access to the terrace, where residents can enjoy incredible sunrises across east London, framed by the Centre Point letters.
