Balfron Tower is one of London's most iconic buildings, a striking piece of architecture that has come to define the style and sensibility of an era. Possessing a gravity and presence that has become increasingly rare on the city's skyline, Balfron Tower was designed by Erno Goldfinger in 1967 and awarded its Grade II* Listing in 2015.
From the outset it was lauded as one of the era's most innovative examples of residential design. Comprising of a meticulous concrete grid of apartments and maisonettes set alongside a slender service tower. The building represented Brutalist architecture at its best, uncompromising but generous with its internal spaces and communal areas.
Now, half a century after its construction, it has been given a full restoration and refurbishment to bring it up to exacting modern standards. 146 apartments reside in the 27 storey building, complete with communal roof garden on the 28th floor and a series of residents' amenity spaces located on every third floor.
The design team is a collaboration between architects, Studio Egret West and Ab Rogers Design, who have meticulously guided the transformation of the tower, into an elegant contemporary apartment building, whilst ensuring that the historic fabric of this important piece of Modernist architecture has been carefully respected.
