Blake Tower (Formerly the Barbican YMCA)

Location: London, England
Architect: Chamberlin, Powell & Bon
Completed: 1968
Status: Present
Brief Overview: 

The YMCA building is a striking 16-storey tower located at the northern entrance of the Barbican estate from Goswell Road. The tower is constructed with exposed pick hammered and bush hammered concrete, revealing Pen Lee granite aggregate, typically found across the Barbican Estate.

It was positioned to bridge the Barbican with the older Golden Lane Estate, and the building's height and strategic placement emphasize its role as a connecting link within the urban landscape. The building's southern side features a projecting concrete fire escape which was maintained and upgraded as part of the renovations to convert the tower into luxury flats in 2016.

ALL EU ORDERS processed through our Etsy Store HERE

Our concrete sculptures are individually hand cast in solid concrete. This means that each piece will have distinctive markings and minor blemishes due to air bubbles in the concrete. This is a natural part of the material and will mean that no two pieces are ever exactly the same.

We aim to make and ship your artwork within 28 days.  If you require your order by a specific date before this please let us know. 


Our concete models are all made using a fine grain quickset cement with a polymer additive. This gives a good balance between strength and detail casting. However concrete is a brittle material and our models are delicate and can break with impact.
