In Pictures: Secret Bits Of The Barbican - Londonist

Regarding the seventh photo: “A gentle reminder to construction workers that the Barbican auditorium is directly below. Work has to be timed to not interfere with performances.”

Although the auditorium is below I imagine this sign is more to do with not disturbing the Barbican’s residents. I doubt anyone is in the auditorium before 9am to be disturbed.

Also, regarding “the larger flats would likely set you back a few million pounds.” You think? The three and four bedroom flats in the Barbican’s towers (with much better views than Frobisher Crescent) reached a peak of about ¬£1 million so I doubt a three bedroom flat there will fetch “a few million pounds” especially given the direction of prices these days.
