Poste Modern: The Postern Barbican, London by Chamberlin Powell and Bon-


The Postern forms part of the Barbican estate designed by Chamberlin Powell and Bon in the 1960s. The Postern is made up of 7 town houses each with their own garage and roof terrace. The houses are accessed via St Giles Terrace and they also have doors that lead out on to the Barbican High walk. To the Rear they overlook the lily pond and St Giles Church. The houses are of red brick and concrete construction with semi circular windows filling in the arched brick detailing.
