Barbican Apartment by Takero Shimazaki Architects

Barbican Apartment is a minimal apartment located in London, United Kingdom, designed by Takero Shimazaki Architects. The renovation is within the Shakespeare Tower of the Barbican complex within London. Due to the client’s experience of living in Japan, the interior references Japanese design, including the use of sliding timber screens and tatami mats. Other elements include a non-structural terrazzo column that sits at the center of the plan that would act as a bridge between the two contrasting languages of this interior architecture.
