Type 121 Barbican Estate flats

Type 121 is a two-bedroom mews house in Brandon Mews. Houses in Brandon Mews are entered by going down steps from the Podium next to Willoughby House. This is the upper level. Immediately inside the front door on the right is a bedroom with a large window (facing onto the car park area below the highwalk). This is created out of the space between the entrance halls of Types 119 and 121. Then there is a WC, and the bathroom, and then the spiral stairs down to the living area. Carrying on along the top floor, there is finally the main bedroom looking west over the lake.

Taking the stairs down to the lower floor, the kitchen is at the back; the large living area is at the front. The living area is all the same level. The spiral staircase is in the centre of the lower floor. There is a store room below the living room.

Brandon Mews has 26 houses made up of four similar designs: Type 118, Type 119, Type 120 and Type 121.

Type 118 and Type 120 houses are always paired. Type 120 has an extra bedroom which is taken from the space between Type 118’s and 120’s come in pairs. There are seven such pairs of houses – five pairs at the Andrewes House end of the terrace and two at the Speed House end.

Type 119 and Type 121 also always come in pairs, with Type 121 having the extra bedroom. There are six such pairs of houses – all roughly in the middle of the terrace and overlooking the lake rather than Speed Garden.

Differences between the pairs is that Types 118/120 have a split level living area with a few steps down to the windows, and a normal internal staircase near the kitchen; Types 119/121 have no change in level in the living room, and they have a spiral staircase towards the centre of the living area.
