Double Decker have teamed up with Conran as art consultants for the marketing suite of Barbican’s latest luxury apartment building, Blake Tower. Named after former Barbican resident William Blake, the Grade II-listed building is the epitome of mid-century Brutalist architecture and one of four residential towers designed by celebrated architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon.
Inspired by the building’s concrete sculptural lines and hammered and brushed texture, the conceptual approach references the strong identity of the Barbican Estate and the tower’s architectural significance.
