The penthouse apartment at Gasholders London, the landmark residence built within the Grade II-listed cast iron gasholder guide frames in King’s Cross, has been unveiled, with interiors by Roksanda Ilinčić.
With her background in applied arts and architecture, she has created an elegant blend of furniture, art, ceramics, books and objet for the three-bedroom Gasholders x Roksanda three-level penthouse.
With a focus on soothing shades of berry and blush against relaxed neutrals, the penthouse showcases women makers with a huge mural by Paris-based artist Caroline Denervaud taking centre stage in the dining room, and objet by Australian ceramicist Alana Wilson, Berlin-based potter Christine Roland and Londoner Annette Lantsoght.
Carefully sourced finds include Postmodern and Mid-century modern pieces such as a dining table by Angelo Mangiarotti and Pierre Jeanneret chairs from the 1950s, as well as curated literature from some of Roksanda’s closest confidants and inspirations, including Eva Rothschild, Marina Abramovic, Alice Rawsthorn and Valeria Napoleone.
‘As a previous resident of Kings Cross, the Gasholders were an iconic landmark that always captured my attention and one which I found particularly beautiful,’ says Roksanda Ilinčić.

‘To be able revisit a neighbourhood that felt so familiar to me and which now hosts the institution which moulded me as a designer, Central Saint Martins, felt like an exciting opportunity.
‘Architecture, art and design are disciplines which consistently inspire my own collections. This project has created the opportunity to expand my own ideas about creating a true reflection of my own aesthetic, beyond fashion.’
The penthouse also has a double-height sunken courtyard garden and feature staircase leading to a private roof garden with a striking Pallas Table designed by Konstantin Grcic and Gitta Gschventer’s concrete stools cast from moulds based on paper bags.
Each of the nine elegant penthouses at Gasholders, designed by WilkinsonEyre with interior architecture by Jonathan Tuckey Design, has its own roof garden created by Dan Pearson Studio, an RHS Chelsea Flower Show gold-medal winning landscape architecture practice.
Gasholders London is a development of 145 distinctive apartments with a residents gym and spa, business lounge and entertainment suite with screening room, games room, private dining room and rooftop gardens.
The Gasholders x Roksanda penthouse is available to buy fully-furnished for £7,750,000. See gasholderslondon.com
