Information on One Blackfriars, 1-16 Blackfriars Road, Southwark, London SE1

One Blackfriars, known as the "Vase", was inspired by The Lansetti II vase by renowned Finnish artist Timo Sarpaneva. It is a luxurious contemporary mixed-use residential tower in the heart of London on the vibrant south bank of the River Thames. Offering breath-taking city and river views, this 170-metre building's distinctive design is an architectural masterpiece and an iconic landmark on the city’s skyline.

Developed by St George London of Berkeley Group, One Blackfriars is a striking 50-storey glass-clad tower. It houses 274 meticulously designed apartments and penthouses, a boutique-style 161-bedroom hotel, a landscaped piazza, retail and leisure spaces. The apartments boast high specification finishes, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious open-plan living areas.

Central to the development is a public piazza beautifully landscaped with water features and locally commissioned artwork. 

Inspired by renowned British artists like 
Barbara Hepworth, Turner, and Gainsborough, the interiors of the apartments exude innovation, elegance, and reflective surfaces, capturing the essence of these artistic styles. They feature extensive glass walls and generous Winter gardens, wrapped in a single-glazed outer facade with powered louvres for ventilation.
