Type 107 Barbican Estate flats

Type 107 is a three-storey, two-bedroom, penthouse maisonette with storerooms in Willoughby House. You enter the flat off the building’s central corridor and you take steps up to the living area. The kitchen is a large corner of the living room. There is a half flight of stairs up to the internal corridor leading to the bedroom. At the top of these stairs is a small ‘store room’ or ante-room leading to the separate WC. Further along the corridor is another ‘store room’ nearly as big as a bedroom. It’s called a ‘store room’ because it doesn’t have windows. So you aren’t meant to use it as living space. Another half flight leads to a landing with the bathroom and bedroom off it. Finally, there is a flight up to a studio/second bedroom at the top.

There is one Type 107 maisonette in Willoughby House.
