Industrial style is elevated with polished timber and steel in this London apartment, which lies in Ernö Goldfinger’s brutalist icon Trellick Tower.
The sixth-floor modernist flat has rough concrete panelled walls and ceilings, original steel doorframes and architrave light switches, and new oak parquet and kitchen furniture, which form its limited material palette.
An open concrete staircase leads to two bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows while the kitchen and living room have glazed end walls with views over plane trees and direct access to its full-length balcony.
The grade II*-listed concrete apartment block follows on from Goldfinger’s earlier Poplar landmark, Balfron Tower. It was completed in 1972 and is rumoured to be the inspiration behind J. G. Ballard’s dystopian novel High Rise but in recent years has become a cultural icon.
This 800 sq ft London property is on sale for £675,000 with The Modern House.
