One Blackfriars

The new place to be in London

One Blackfriars stands out over the London landscape, it has joined a few iconic buildings that have been given nicknames during construction. It is known to London locals as “the Vase” due to its irregular shape and fully glass frontage inspired by a Scandinavian Glass vessel. The 5,467 glass panel design allows for near unrivalled views of the both the Thames and London’s other world renowned landmark buildings. Standing at 170 meters above ground level, the building houses 274 homes over 50 storeys, with amenities including a pool, spa, golf simulator, cinema room and even an “experience shower” with mood lighting, bird sounds and forest scents to name a few.

Internally you will find exquisite decor in the ground floor lobby with premium furnishing and impressive art everywhere you look. Within a short walk of the Tate Modern, the building has famously taken inspiration from the likes of Turner, Hepworth and Gainsborough, all of which clearly visible in the innovative materials and surfaces used both inside and out. Apartments are spread out across all levels with largely a mixture of one, two and three bedroom apartments, although some take up full floors and others even multiple levels. Given a value of over £245m by EK RCA, there is no question we believe it is at the top end of London’s luxury high-rise living.

Another iconic skyscraper to add to EK RCA’s ever-growing collection.
