Brutalist Barbican penthouse
£3.7 million: direct your driver to EC2 and the brutalist masterpiece that is Barbican. There you will find this penthouse at Blake Tower, the first new housing scheme on the site in more than 50 years.
The three-bedroom flat, designed by Conran and Partners, is as butch as you’d expect, with each room taking full advantage of staggering views across town from its setting across the 16th and 17th floors. Openplan living/kitchen and dining spaces, along with two bedroom suites can be found on the first level with access to two terraces, while the top floor plays host to the master suite and a second living room lit by sliding glass walls out to a huge terrace that’s flanked by the sheer Barbican wall.
