One Blackfriars Shortlisted for the 2015 World Architecture Festival Awards before it was even completed, One Blackfriars - or 'The Vase' - is a 170 metre high tower on London's Southbank where homes start at more than a million pounds... for a one-bed. The 50-storey asymmetric tower designed by SimpsonHaugh Architects makes its mark on London's skyline with an unusual curved vertical line - looking not unlike a boomerang. Within the curvaceous high rise are 273 new homes - costing up to £23 million - with interiors by Tara Bernerd's firm and with access to a spa and swimming pool, private screening room, wine cellar and an executive lounge on the 32nd level, complete with a private dining area. The boutique 161-bedroom Bankside Hotel, with interiors by US based Dayna Lee and Ted Berner, the principal designers of Powerstrip Studio - occupies the low-rise six storey building on Rennie Street at the base of the residential tower. The hotel is housed behind a separate curved glass facade and includes a restaurant and bar with an outdoor terrace , state-of-the-art fitness facilities and a 'white cube' art gallery.
