Type 108 Blake Tower


Type 108 is a two-bedroom flat type found on floors 08-10 and 12-13 of Blake Tower. In fact, there are two identical mirror versions, side by side – Type 108A and 108B. Type 108A is the layout for Flat Nos. 82, 92, 102, 122 and 132 on the east side of the building. Type 108B is the layout for the adjoining mirror Flat Nos. 83, 93, 103, 123, and 133 on the west side of the building. (The equivalent flats on floor 11 – Flat Nos. 112 and 113 – are slightly different.)

Type 108 flats are at the end of Blake Tower nearest the Barbican Estate. The Type 108A flats (the ‘2’s) occupy the south-east corner of the building and most of the east side, and their windows face east. The Type 108B flats (the ‘3’s) occupy the south-west corner of the building and most of the west side, and their windows face west.

The entrance to the flat is immediately off the lift lobby. Immediately in front of the flat’s entrance door is a set of double doors opening into the master bedroom. There are windows facing east (‘A’ types/the ‘2’s) or west (‘B’ types/the ‘3’s). On one side (north end of the room) is an ensuite bathroom, with a bath and a separate shower). Going back to the flat’s entrance lobby, there is a corridor on one side. This passes a bathroom. This bathroom has a bath with a shower in it. Next along the corridor is the second bedroom. This has a window on the east wall (‘A’ types/the ‘2’s) or west wall (‘B’ types/the ‘3’s) opposite the door. Finally, at the end of the corridor, is the living/dining/kitchen area. The kitchen is placed along the internal wall shared with the mirror flat. There is also a little utility room backing onto the bathroom off the corridor. The living area has windows all along the east wall (‘A’ types/the ‘2’s) or west wall (‘B’ types/the ‘3’s) which also extend round the corner to include a bit of the south wall. There are windows also near the external staircase in the south wall next to the kitchen area.
