Cavalier House in West London - opinions?

This is Cavalier House based in Ealing, West London.



A recently built apartment block, the green glass towers are actually private balconies.

I really like it. It's one of my favourite buildings in London and possibly my favourite in West London.

In a strange way, I think it's almost a modern interpertation of Brighton's Grand Hotel:

I'd be interested to know what everyone else's opinions of it's looks are...

I've gotta say that I really hate this building, i'd go so far as call it an abomination. There's a few buildings in London boroughs just like this done by the same developers. They take old ugly office blocks and convert them into apartments.

Sorry to be so negative about a building you like.
