This fine example of a Barbican apartment, known as a type 26 is located in possibly the most sought after block, Gilbert House.

Designed by the renowned Architect practice Chamberlain, Powell and Bon, The Barbican is in our opinion one of the very best examples of Brutalist Architecture that can be found in London, which has a strong influence of Le Corbusier design.
Grade II listed, The Barbican is still the most sought after residential development within The Corporation of London, attracting all walks of life from Academics, Architects, Fashion Designers, Lawyers and Bankers to name but a few.
Its gardens and lake bring a little bit of "Country Life" to the Centre of The City and The Barbican Centre which is part of the Global Cultural Districts Network is the largest performing Art Centre in Europe, hosting music concerts, art exhibitions and film screenings.
Without a doubt Gilbert House is one of the most esteemed houses within the development, crossing over the lake, with possibly the best views of the Barbican Estate and lake itself.

A superb example and very rare Barbican apartment.
