Rooftop Extension in Central London designed by Uber Raum


Uber Raum Architects are designing a rooftop extension to a period townhouse building in Kensington & Chelsea, London.

The project will create two new homes in a currently disused building, with the rooftop extension forming the top floor of a three-bedroom duplex apartment.

The geometry of the extension begins by growing out of the existing building, and respecting the surrounding by climbing no higher than the neighbouring buildings, and folding down at the street edge to reduce visible impact.

The window proportions continue the rhythm of the street into the new mansard roof, which is clad in a different material to mark new from existing.

The roof folds upwards in the centre, scooping natural light into the kitchen, dining and main living space, and folds down at the rear, enclosing a sheltered terrace at roof level.

UberRaum designs new restaurant in Knightbridge



Uber Raum Architects are designing a restaurant which will reanimate a derelict building in London, near Harrods, set to open in 2017.

Several different dining zones are created in the restaurant, which includes an outside space with pavement café tables, an inner reception and bar area, and a winter garden with a glazed roof bringing sunlight directly into the heart of the restaurant.

The interior features burnished metal wall cladding and a sculptural timber soffit, to produce a tactile and welcoming ambience.

Uber Raum’s Summer Rooftop Party


 Summer finally arrives in London in time for Uber Raum’s first Rooftop Party!

At the event last week we welcomed 70 people onto our roof terrace, celebrating the move to our new office.
We enjoyed plenty of food and drink to christen the new space with a party on the roof, and the evening sun lit up the view over London til late into the night!

Cliffside masterplan overlooking ocean designed by ÜberRaum


ÜberRaum Architects developed a concept design for a new masterplan development of luxury villas on a 30 acre cliffside site.

Located close to the ancient silk route, the spectacular site slopes steeply down to overlook the ocean. Tactile natural materials are used, interpreted in a contemporary manner.

Each villa is designed to include framed sea views, engaging the homes with their dramatic location.

Cloud Cuckoo House completed


We have completed our Passivhaus project in the Black Forest in Germany. The owners can now move their young family in, and enjoy their new living space in time for summer. An oak canyon staircase runs from the top of the house to the bottom to reflect the topography of the hillside, and encourage movement throughout the house.

When clouds roll into the valley, the house seems to float above them as if in a Cloud Cuckoo Land. It’s a magical sight, so fingers crossed for a day of bad weather! We will keep you posted.
