Type 74 Barbican Estate flats

Type 74 is a one-bedroom flat. Type 74 is the layout of the penthouse flat on the corner of Gilbert House, directly overlooking to St Giles’ Church. So it has quite a view. Type 74 closely resembles Type 46, the layout of a similar penthouse flat on the top floor of Seddon House.

Type 74 follows an unusual ‘S’ shape, presumably using up left-over space. Many Barbican flats are ‘L’ shaped – this living room is more like ‘V’ shaped round the kitchen, with a bedroom at the other end.
