A place of wonder for even the most seasoned Londoner, The Barbican is the beautiful brutalist village right in the heart of the city. We sometimes find ourselves here, just for a wander, on the odd weekend just because it’s so – weird – and amazing.

Intentionally designed to look slightly medieval, the buildings are part of London’s skyline and stand tall like brown guardians of a tropical lagoon. But, what are the flats actually like? We had high hopes for the interiors of the building and photographer Anton Rodriguez‘ photo essay of the place doesn’t disappoint!


Built between 1965 and 1976, the estate houses over 2,000 flats and this rare glimpse inside is feeding our voyerism as it’s quite interesting to see how others live – and the fact we’re totally nosey.

Check out our favourites from Rodriguez’ collection:
