Blake Tower consists of contemporary apartments and penthouses, as it boasts some of London’s most recognisable architecture. Discover custom-designed furnishings and hand-finished interiors that have been crafted to the highest Barbican standards.
These contemporary Barbican apartments show a keen awareness of their historical importance and a luxurious, modern specification.
Barbican residences share the same eye for detail as the estate’s mid-century apartments- with the concrete reveals and brass panelling of the landings, and in the clean interior lines of polished plaster and timber. This is matched by a cutting edge specification, with innovative, integrated lighting, custom tiling and impeccable finishes giving the apartments a crisp modern aesthetic that is all their own.
Interiors to uphold history
The integrated kitchen units and flowing living spaces within these Barbican apartments are an open, contemporary take on the innovative design of the Barbican’s original apartments.
Utilising the original listed fenestration, bedrooms are orientated to maximise natural light and best highlight the strong geometries intended by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon. Bathroom detailing references the original bespoke fittings of the Barbican, including a sleek, modern alternative to the iconic washbasin designed for the development.
