Architect David Adjaye’s Silverlight comes up for sale

David Adjaye’s award-winning Silverlight house is on the market in for the first time since its construction in 2009.

The four-bedroom home, which sits on a narrow plot of land between Harrow Road and the Grand Union Canal in West London, was Adjaye Associates’ first new-build private residential project.

Designed in response to its historic canalside surroundings, which include a mix of ex-industrial properties and a nearby listed Victorian pub, Silverlight was named for its reflective aluminium-clad facade. Inside, the building incorporates industrial materials, such as a concrete kitchen surface and exposed steel structural beams. 

Spread over five floors, Silverlight’s 603 sq m interior is organised around ‘parallel spaces’ – a mixture of private and communal rooms, including a columnated gallery on the second floor, a basement, enclosed music room, three guest bedrooms and a studio. The living space features a double-height ceiling.

A few of its extras include an integrated garage and a roof top garden, from which to in take the views of the canal.

Silverlight is on the market through Domus Nova for £5.5m.
