About Carlton House
The mix of private and affordable residential units are split over 13 floors, including ground and basement – with ancillary parking and servicing equipment and spaces. Three retail units and one commercial unit make up the ground floor frontage.
The building will be constructed of a reinforced concrete frame, with aluminium rainscreen cladding with an expressed frame clad in contrasting lighter toned panels. The envelope and massing contain a series of set-backs to the east and southern (rear) parts of the building, which have been informed by the proximity of neighbours.
The vision behind Carlton House was to create a new gateway to Putney, a landmark designed to stand apart but in tune with its surroundings.
The result is a handsome modern residence in a prime spot on Upper Richmond Road, minutes from East Putney Underground and a short walk from the River Thames. Designed by award-winning architects Assael, the striking façade is a statement of arrival, while the stepped shape echoes the rise and fall of the neighbouring buildings.
There’s a concierge with mezzanine residents’ lounge, landscaped roof garden and 73 apartments and penthouses, with elegant interiors that evoke traditional British style. While trends come and go, Carlton House is set to be a timeless addition to the neighbourhood
