It's all concrete

24 storeys

On my visit, the plan that emerged was a lift to the top (the 24th floor), visit a few artists, then make my way down the stairs to see what was occurring on the other levels.

Location:

This contains a pair of lifts, drying rooms now redundant and empty, and a boiler room at the top to provide heating to the whole building. This feature is, according to one person I spoke to, erratically effective, with some rooms overheated and others left cold.

Location:


Token greenery

Balfron Tower is arranged such that residents get a sunset view over Central London to the west (subject to there being an actual sunset on the day of course). These days, The Shard provides striking reflections earlier in the day as well.
