City Road
A pair of bow-fronted apartment buildings on the City Road, near Old Street Station.  Tower 1 stands 16-storeys high and Tower 2 14-storeys in all they contain 149 apartments described by the developers as, "luxury apartments to suit all lifestyles."

 They also describe them as "London's Most Iconic Apartments" and their appearance as, "two elegant, curving towers drawing arcs in space and carving the air into a newly emerging skyline." 

However, that view isn't shared by everyone.  In 2011 the Bezier was nominated for the Carbuncle Award.  Those nominating it felt that, " London's Bezier Apartments is another high-density development built on a busy roundabout. With their curved facades and wide balconies this contemporary development could have worked well in a different context, but in the middle of busy Old Street it feels suffocated and cluttered."
