Very interesting choice. The cladding does look very very good for its age. No one would know that it is 35+ years old. The cladding almost looks like sand blasted sheet metal.

Oriel Chambers - Liverpool - 1864

Quote:
Designed by Liverpool architect Peter Ellis in 1864, it revolutionised commercial building facade design, foretelling curtain walling and glazed facades of the Modern Movement and beyond.
Quote:
Oriel Chambers
Designer: Peter Ellis
Built: 1864
Location: Corner of Water Street and Covent Garden, Liverpool.

Arguably the finest building in Liverpool and without doubt one of the most influential building of its age. Designed by a relatively unknown Liverpool architect Peter Ellis in 1864, it was the result of a competition. Stylistically and structurally, Oriel Chambers is prophetic of the Modern Movement. Rather than echoing the small window patterns of the Renaissance so much copied in buildings of this age, projecting oriel windows flood the offices with light. Of as much significance is the courtyard behind whose simplified elevations are years ahead of their time. At the time, the building provoked a great deal of adverse comment, being described as 'a great abortion' and 'an agglomeration of great glass bubbles'. Perhaps as a result of comments such as these, Ellis's only other commission was 16 Cook Street. Today we can fully appreciate its honesty, elegance and revolutionary impact.
