City of London apartment description
The culture club
Mention the Barbican to any cultured Londoner and, chances are, they’ll turn a glowing face in your direction before fondly recounting the last film, concert, ballet, or exhibition they saw there. As the largest performing arts centre in Europe, the Barbican is a byword for the best in London’s arts and culture. And sitting nearby, like a rapt spectator in the front row, is Thomas More House, part of the famous Barbican Estate. Here, you can sigh at Stravinsky, purr at Puccini, or catch some Beckett at the boards – before kicking back in this serene open-plan one bedroom, one bathroom apartment, before anyone can call ‘Bravo!’
The best art has been known to ease life’s everyday strains, and your hosts excel in this line: one is a psychotherapist, the other a dentist. They love being right in the middle of the multicultural bustle of London, but savour the calm and peace they’ve created in their apartment.
Artists in residence
You’ll acclaim the soaring concrete of the Barbican's Brutalist architecture as a work of art in itself. Gaze with wonder at its angular geometries before heading inside to the easy ambience of this one bedroom apartment. Intoxicatingly well-lit, the large open-plan sitting room and kitchen has the calmness of a Constable painting, with all the modernity and finish of the newest 3D blockbuster. Cook up a culinary masterpiece in the teal-toned kitchen and serve to an approving audience at the graceful glass dining table. The nearby sofas are perfect for meditative musing, or for getting your film fix as you watch a DVD on the wall-mounted television. The bedroom is a fine example of minimalist elegance, with a wide white canvas surrounding a sumptuous double, all awash with yet more light. For a triumphant encore, it’s on to the bathroom: green, spacious, and full of our fluffy towels and White Company toiletries.
As you picnic in the Barbican’s communal gardens, it can be easy to forget you’re at the very heart of the City of London. A short walk and the dome of St Paul’s looms before you, while the shiny new shopping centre One New Change just begs to be browsed. Make a study of the city at the Museum of London, or pop over the river to explore the Tate Modern or the Globe. So much lies within easy walking distance, but if you need to head further afield, you’ll find Barbican and Moorgate tube stations conveniently close at hand.
