Type P1D Barbican Estate flats

Type P1D is a penthouse studio flat layout in Bryer Court. There are eight P1D flats on the 7th floor of Bryer Court. The entrances to the penthouse flats are off a corridor at the back of the building. So the flats all face west onto the garden square. The entrance is straight into the kitchen with a bathroom on one side. Ahead there is a decent-sized living room and bedroom at the window end. They have an attractive barrel-vaulted ceiling.

Type P1D is the 7th floor version of the Type F1D studio flats which populate the first five floors below, and are very similar in layout. Please read the more detailed comments on the living room, kitchen and bathroom which are contained in the Type F1D page. They apply to this flat type too. 

Type P1D penthouses (and the F1E flats below) differ from the F1D flats in that there is a ‘bite’ out of the Type P1D living room at the window end to accommodate a fire exit; and the balcony, which serves as a fire exit, is not such a long balcony as on the first five floors.

Please note. These plans are illustrations and approximations only. They illustrate types of flats as built. They don’t show the actual demise, size, layout or dimensions of any particular flat. Individual flats may differ, or have been altered.
