Roman House is a redevelopment of one of the City’s first post-war office buildings on the site of the first fatal bomb to land in London during WWII. Based on London Wall, it was part of the original Barbican master plan. Roman House is an apartment building containing 90 leasehold luxury apartments and penthouses which overlook St Alphage Gardens and St Giles Church. It now reflects the modernist heritage of the current building, retaining its stunning Portland stone facade and the interiors inspired by the original piece of Roman wall adjacent to the development. The services within the apartments consisted of underfloor heating and heat recovery ventilation throughout, with individual heat interface units connected to a district heating system installed by Halsion.
The upper penthouse apartments include ducted fan coil units in the ceiling voids connected to a chilled water system to provide comfort cooling. A complete UPS system was also installed for all life safety equipment. Celebrated Architects, The Manser Practice, has created a truly breathtaking collection of apartments within Roman House. The apartments employ the most superior standards of design and craftsmanship, perfectly executed by Halsion.
