No, this isn't much of a home-for-the-holidays type of place, but it's got so much going for it: Concrete! Dramatic spaces! Urban Bond villain lair vibes! Private courtyard garden! Did we mention concrete? Fresh on the market in London, this apartment takes up the former Estate Office in the Barbican Estate, a Brutalist landmark built in the 1970. In the conversion by architects Ken Mackay and Tracey Wiles, original features like concrete walls and pillars, and double-height ceilings are highlighted anew.
Upon entering the double doors off the private courtyard entrance, one finds the sleek, soaring living area, which, on one end, leads to an even glossier black and white kitchen. Four bedrooms are spread over the first floor, while a "semi-open-plan" master bedroom takes up much of the upper level. Watch out for all the textured concrete, which makes provocative appearances in several bathrooms and ison full display in the master bedroom.
