NEVER TOO SMALL Barbican Brutalist Small Apartment – 41sqm/441sqft

Built in the 1960’s, Barbican Estate is a brutilist utopia for inner city living. The estate is a massive complex of 2000 apartments, surrounded by gardens, lakes and arts spaces, known as one of Londons ugliest buildings.

Architect Melanie Schubert from SAM Architects redesigned the 41m2 apartment, dividing the existing open space with a multifunctional central unit that subtly organizes each area. Concealing a washing machine, a wardrobe, and allowing for flexible storage.

The apartment can be further divided with layered curtains, separating the living space from the bedroom. Restrained materials and colours throughout allow the apartment to retain it’s history and blends each division together seamlessly.
