Situated on the 5th floor of Breton House, this bright Barbican apartment has been superbly refurbished by RFK Architects. The refurbishment involved a full modernisation while still retaining many of the outstanding original features of this Type F1A apartment.

The studio apartment has a main room with full length and full height sliding glass doors that give access to a small terrace. This has been furnished with a sofa bed, a Scandinavian String shelving system, a small Eames dining table with Eames chairs and white roller blackout blinds. The living space has underfloor heating throughout and a new rubber floor. There is a bathroom, with an original bath, which has also been updated with a new shower over and clever use of concealed cupboards.  The kitchen area, which has a washing machine, fridge, hob and oven has been fitted with bespoke units to create an efficient, attractive space.

RFK Architects have extensive experience of working with high-profile listed buildings, having been commissioned in the past by the National Gallery, the Tate and the British Museum. They have also worked widely in the retail sector (with clients including Selfridges and John Lewis) and with residences such as this one.

The Barbican Estate is the finest achievement of the architects Chamberlin, Powell & Bon. It was Grade II listed in 2001 in recognition of its extraordinary contribution to London's urban landscape.

The Underground stations of Barbican (Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) and Moorgate (Northern, Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) are both within easy reach. Moorgate also offers National Rail services. The flat is well-positioned for access to the Barbican Arts Centre, Smithfield Market, Whitecross Street and the bars and restaurants of Clerkenwell. There is a Waitrose supermarket at the Barbican. All residents have access to communal gardens throughout the development.
