This luxurious penthouse is part of an imposing Gothic revival structure at London’s St. Pancras railway station. For years the 19th-century structure had languished in disrepair. It stood neglected until the mid-2000s, when the Manhattan Loft Corporation embarked on an ambitious renovation. But though the building’s exterior was restored to its former glory, the onset of the recession meant the interior got just a basic makeover. Until now.
New York-based architect Russell Groves did a tremendous job preserving the existing structure and bringing modernity to this barn. He knew how to use the height of the building to create even more interest with dramatic Capiz-shell globe chandeliers and with gorgeous furniture, many from his own collection.
