The Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE linear drainage system was specially selected for the eleventh floor four bedroom Barbican tower apartment due to its ease of installation and its minimalistic, subtle finish, to compliment the surroundings. The product was chosen because of its variety of components that allowed the flexibility that we needed for installation in an existing condition.
The original 100×100mm white ceramic bathroom tiles have been maintained and complemented with new details such as the continued use of terrazzo flooring. A nod to CB&Ps original intention to clad the Barbican in Marble. This is evident in the choice of Italian Limestone for the en-suite shower room, with specially cut 300×75mm tiles fitting within the original module.
The Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE system allows a continued tiled finish to present a hidden and sleek system. Likewise the choice of the Arne Jacobsen handle is a personal choice but refers to the Danish Assa originals.
