Nice to know that accountants think London is a great place to be.

A 3rd of all UK construction contracts awarded involved developments in London last month. Pretty staggering really.

In this day & age I think it is unacceptable for new appartment buildings to be built without balconies. I wouldn't have thought the benfits of having balconies need explaining. BTW I really like the example bellow, I love this kind of stuff that's emulating old dock architecture. I've seen some in Amsterdam and Hamburg too and I welcome any other variants.

I can't stand protruding balconies myself. They ruin the aesthetic of so many buildings.

Example:

Alberta Tower would look far better with winter gardens or Juliet balconies. The protruding balconies are a mess and ruin the building's profile.

Most of the time they're pretty awful, but they can be beautifully designed (as in alexandru.mircea's example).

Sometimes they can look good - for me, Alberta Tower's problem isn't the fact that it has balconies, it's the fact that the balconies are seemingly just random, scattered all over the building and it just makes it look messy. If there were coherent patterns for the balconies, it would look more ordered and better overall, but the randomness ruins it for me.

Balconies can of course be poorly designed as any other architectural elements, and yeah that above is a poor effort.
