Seems like a lot of money and effort to make something so awkward looking.....Buildings like the above are the ones that disappoint me the most. They had the money, materials, and resources to make something great and they produce mediocrity. Sigh.

I have to agree - actually I looked again to see the location as it appeared to me to be something in Russia or maybe China. In the U.S. the majority of major "traditional" style buildings get it right but no so this one

Robert Stern getting a commission in London has to be great news even if it does involve the loss of a 19th c building (of no great distinction) The existing "thing" (parking station) is a real eyesore in an otherwise fairly unspoiled area so it certainly won't be missed. I do hope Stern gets the job but you can bet he will get a lot of criticism from the narrow minded RIBA.

Beautiful house but more akin to the American "Arts and Crafts" movement than to Gothic revival..
