The main goal of Emulsion, was to update the residence while remaining sympathetic to the Grade II-listed complex. The Barbican Estate is one of the largest examples of the brutalist style, representing the city living!

Referencing the return of minimalism, they feature austere detailing such as unornamented furnishings and bold colour-blocked walls, alongside with original elements.

“The client was keen for us to create a new residence which would be sensitive to the iconic Grade II architecture, whilst maximizing the use of space,” said the Emulsion’s director Yen-Yen Teh. “The interior palette includes feature walls inspired by Le Corbusier’s color range against a neutral gray rubber floor, and dark wood and wired glass referencing materials of the original building.”

The triplex apartment has a kitchen and living room that open onto balconies overlooking the post-war complex, alongside two bedrooms and bathrooms. Highlighting the wooden treads you’ll find a bright teal wall, creating a nice contrast between the original and contemporary qualities of the space.

Was also incorporated a mezzanine level into the barrel-vaulted top floor, to accommodate a pared-back bedroom finished with bold yellow furnishings and paintwork. For the lighting scheme they choose mid-century modern designs including teamed with vintage pieces.
