It was about time that they finally recladed this building. The brown facade was just plain ugly.

I am glad the new facade preserves the dark color of the building. Its always a nice contrast in the skyline.

Yeah a great example is of course de AXA tower in paris where the whole tower is going to change its color, shape and height.

But this is a very nice make over too, i hate those brown buildings with black windows.

Yes I agree. The AXA renovation in Paris is just incredible.

Although this is not a huge refurb I actually quite like it. It is not the most interesting facade but who am I to complain? It looks a lot better than the old facade and when the refurb is complete it will certainly bring this building into the present world of architecture.

The old black facade was very dull and un-welcoming and I am sure that this new steel and glass facade will help balance the skyline in an aesthetic sense.

Yeah, really a nice refurb. I hardly undertand how some people in the German section were not pleased with it.
