Aren't they trying to reinstate the original top floor? Surely as the building is listed they would need to be faithful to the original design?The new building looks a bit better in these renders, there's quite a bit of variation in the brickwork pattern that wasn't noticeable in the initial images. However, I still hope they can come up with something better for the Telegraph offices; that top floor just looks wrong.
Also, I see they only have one image of a tree in their imaging software!
Looking at Allford Hall Monaghan Morris' work they've been involved in and delivered some very nice projects. Hopefully they can do this project justice.I really like the proposed roof too, but I have a thing for architects who can successfully pull off an old with new fusion design. The Ulster Museum was the first building to get me into architecture as a wean and is a great example. Also saw some similarly executed successful examples in London/Madrid.
Yeah passed that in March when I was over, very impressive project. Their Television Centre conversion looks very good as well, from pictures at least.^^ Promising. I didn't realise they were behind the New Scotland Yard pavilion. I saw it last year in person and it looked fantastic.
Yeah I didn't quite understand the excitement myself. Unless I'm presuming it'll be office workers only.That's what i presumed, hence i was a bit surprised at the amount of articles trumpeting it given that 99% of the city will never get access to it.
Will be interesting to see how it is incorporated given the differing heights of the upper floors.
