Landmark Place, EC3R 6EA
Landmark Place, one of London’s finest residential developments of 2016, is a story of firsts – not only is this the first joint venture undertaken by Barratt London and CPC Group Limited but the project is rising within the City, where London began, a site which has been home to leaders and innovators for centuries. Lying within the boundaries of Roman Londinium, Landmark Place is a development of 165 one-bedroom suites, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses designed by world-renowned architects and bounded by three of the landmarks which have come to symbolise London - the Thames, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
The development consists of two interconnected buildings, one of nine storeys and the other eleven storeys, which appear to be wrapped in glass, allowing wide vistas of the Thames and the London skyline. Recessed balconies provide a seamless transition between the exterior and the interior of the buildings, while the generosity of glazing – over 80% of the building is glass – provides the widest of views in this historic setting.
At Landmark Place, the quality of the interior architecture, by Bowler James Brindley, is as significant as the exterior design, with inspiration drawn from the simple palette of Mies van de Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion. The views from every angle are taken into consideration and enhanced by glazing which wraps around the corners of the building, widening the vista.
