Chapter House, previously named Parker House, a 5-storey building that was originally designed and built in the late 19th Century by a team of architects known for a mild-Baroque style, underwent a major demolition and rebuild to create an intimate collection of 40 contemporary, luxury residences.

The Victorian façade has been retained and incorporated into the new scheme, giving the building a flair for the dramatic and providing a positive contribution to the Seven Dials Conservation Area.

The design of this luxury residence brings together modern architecture and interior design within a meticulously restored historical façade. Each apartment within this boutique development was individually designed to be opulent, playful and sophisticated to reflect the culturally vibrant area in which Chapter House is situated.

Scotch Partners work on this impressive project included designing efficient and novel solutions for services to the basement plant and systems serving each of the bespoke apartments with mechanical ventilation, whilst not compromising the integrity of the retained building fabric. Scotch Partners incorporated centralised plant to provide heating, hot water and cooling which ensured that plant at roof level was negligible. This allowed an extensive PV array to be installed to help meet the challenging CO2 reduction target. This, together with other sustainable solutions Scotch Partners provided, contributed to the scheme’s target of ‘Excellent’ certification under BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment.
