Description of 8 over 5
8 over 5 is a residential building in Clerkenwell, London EC1.
Former Weights & Measures Office dating back to 1892.
The 8 apartments at 5 Rosebery Avenue feature many attributes that tip the scales in their favour. In a carefully calculated transformation, the best of the Victorian building’s period features have been retained and a bright and airy rear extension added.
The interior design theme, which was also conceived by BuckleyGrayYeoman, features natural materials and a neutral palette. A comfortable fusion of classic and modern, it provides the settingfor residents to express their own style for traditional, mid-century, ultra-contemporary or madly eclectic interiors.
In the main entrance lobby, exposed original brickwork and ornate floor tiles sit alongside striking artworks and contemporary timber paneling. Elsewhere, this well-crafted juxtaposition of old and new continues. Curved head windows have been preserved and the duplex apartment stairway is lined with a glass balustrade.
The building was ready for occupation in September 2016.
