St Pancras Chambers

George Gilbert Scott's gothic Grade I masterpiece

Client:      Private Individual

St. Pancras Chambers is a complex of 67 apartments carved out of the interior of George Gilbert Scott's gothic Grade I masterpiece, originally part of St Pancras railway station. The apartments occupy the top five floors, which began life in 1873 and have lain abandoned for the last 75 years. Perhaps one of the most spectacular apartments owned by Mr Peter Tompkins is spread over two floors. The master bedroom has four monumental windows, the living room ceiling is 10 metres high; it has mezzanines and balconies - with unparalleled views across the Station. The secondary glazing provided, not only thermally insulated the windows in St Pancras chambers, but also shut out the noise from Euston Road. Peter goes on to say: "We contacted Selectaglaze because we knew that secondary glazing was permitted by heritage bodies. We were also aware that to thermally insulate the windows in St. Pancras Chambers, because of the sheer size and multitude of shapes, would present a challenge.”
