Type 36 Barbican Estate flats

Type 36 is a three-bedroom, penthouse duplex. The lower floor is basically rectangular in shape. There’s a bedroom on one side, next to an L-shaped living area, which widens out to take in all the window frontage. The portion in front of the kitchen was designated as a dining area by the Barbican when they designed them. The central part of the living area is double height. Stairs at the back lead to a landing which looks down onto the living area, with a bedroom on one side and a bedroom and a second bathroom on the other side. In addition there’s a roof patio.

In each case, Type 36 flats are surrounded by almost identical Type 35s. (In fact, I can’t see any difference.)

There is just one flat of Type 36 in each of Gilbert House, Mountjoy House and Seddon House, the east-west-facing terraces.
