Blake Tower Marketing Suite

The Blake Tower marketing suite is raw and geometric, yet delicate and refined. Perfectly grounded in its location as one of London’s most brutalist residential developments. Situated on the edge of London’s Barbican Estate, Blake Tower is the fourth skyscraper within this much-admired brutalist enclave.
The distinctive 17-storey tower was originally designed with modestly scaled guest rooms for students and other short-stay visitors. The conversion therefore involved creating more generous and inviting apartments better suited for modern living, ranging in size from studios and one-bedroom flats up to three-bedroom apartments and two penthouses.
The Blake Tower marketing suite adopts a similar palette to that of the apartments to reflect the unique character of the neighbouring Barbican estate. The modern heritage of the Barbican is referenced in the use of exposed, pick-hammered concrete, lightened by timber floors, wooden doors and joinery, along with other overtly domestic textures.
