The Northacre Way
When Swedish architect Klas Nilsson first founded Northacre over 30 years ago, it was with a single-minded vision to preserve and celebrate some of London’s most treasured architectural masterpieces.
Over the years, Nilsson created some of London’s most desirable homes, setting a new standard for luxury living experiences.
Nilsson understood how great architecture can have a huge impact on the world around it. This is a strong belief that lies at the core of Northacre to this very day.
Northacre continues to create stunning, design-led and innovative residences in central London and will expand into the MENA region. All future projects will be underpinned by a new-found purpose of enabling healthier and longer lives.
The world is changing, and for many of us, we are increasingly conscious of our own personal wellbeing and our impact on the world around us.
Through an insatiable curiosity, positive outlook and relentless drive, Northacre seeks to create not just luxury living spaces, but highly innovative living experiences. These work to enhance the wellbeing of its residents, tenants and visitors, and society as a whole.
The Broadway will be a vibrant living quarter in the heart of Westminster. The six striking residential towers, which will form the centre of this modern-day masterpiece, are the epitome of contemporary design innovation.
Vicarage Gate House
Designed by leading London architect Eric Parry, this 42,000 square foot building offers a mix of three, four and five-bedroom duplex and lateral apartments, each with its own private south-facing outside space and underground parking. With 24-hour concierge and state-of-the-art leisure facilities, these exclusive luxury homes are the result of exceptional craftsmanship and a keen eye for detail.
Hyde Park, W2
This ambitious five-year revival scheme of the old Lancaster Gate Thistle Hotel features a 130m long/30m high facade retention, the longest in Europe and a three-storey underground car park. With 77 lateral and duplex apartments, landscaped gardens, 24-hour porterage and extensive leisure facilities, Northacre’s unique ability to fuse traditional architecture with new design and construction is abundantly apparent here.
Two early 20th Century Grade II-listed Mayfair mansions converted from offices into six exceptional residential apartments with 24-hour porterage and concierge. In creating these luxurious London apartments, Northacre took considerable care to retain and recreate original period details. They achieved this by obtaining planning and listed building consent in less than six weeks, thanks to their experienced negotiators.
A striking gated development in Kensington, this refurbishment and revival scheme saw the transformation of the former Queen Elizabeth College, part of King’s College London, into 66 outstanding apartments, landscaped gardens, leisure and concierge facilities. It demonstrates Northacre’s devotion to historical details and received a Restoration and Conservation Award by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
A former King’s College facility, this extraordinary gated development is set in 7.5 acres of walled parkland and consists of a mixture of Grade II-listed architecture and new builds. Another impressive Northacre revival scheme, this development created 267 luxury apartments and 22 houses, all equipped for contemporary luxury living in this truly desirable location.
A pioneering gated development, The Bromptons was formally an NHS hospital until Northacre restored the listed neo-gothic main building to its former glory by building two new blocks to replicate its architectural style. With 74 family-sized apartments, underground car parking, gated private gardens and a swimming pool, it received a Restoration and Conservation Award from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
For this prestigious revival scheme, Northacre revitalised an entire Victorian terrace in Kensington, creating 69 purpose-built apartments. The original facade has been meticulously retained with an all-new concrete structure, whilst the modern amenities of a new building are seamlessly featured. This remarkable design was awarded both a Civic Trust Award and the Royal Borough of Chelsea’s Restoration and Conservation Award.
This unique development involved the rescue of an uninterrupted terrace of derelict Georgian houses, revived to create 23 exquisite family homes. Northacre reinstated a wonderful carriage driveway over a new underground car park and created leisure areas for each home. In 1999, it was awarded Best London Garden Square and received a Restoration and Conservation Award from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
