Basically, an apartment in Speed House, dating back to 1969 and the first terrace block to be built on the site. As you probably know, the Barbican is the work of Chamberlin, Powell and Bon and is grade II-listed on account of its architectural merit.

As you can see, it is pretty much untouched with full height, triple width sliding doors leading to the balcony (the original sliding door is still in place) and the Brooks Marine kitchen, bathroom and separate WC.
