The Co-op building has had some garish colours added since I last saw it!

The "Co-op Department Store" has been returned to its original 1930s colouring, not seen for about 60 years, when it was recently refurbished into a hotel.

The 1930s colours as shown in one of Ken's photos . . .

Mea House, Ellison Place, Newcastle - information & pictures 22/02/20

Continuing with some of the "modern" buildings of Newcastle upon Tyne

From https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1419279

EXTRACT

Location, Ellison Place, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8XS

Heritage Category: Listed Building Grade:II

List Entry Number:1419279

Summary - Office building constructed to house multiple voluntary organisations together in a single building, 1972-4, by Ryder & Yates. Concrete and steel construction with brown-brindle brickwork and mirrored Corning glass cladding. 5-storeys plus basement and penthouse

Reasons for Designation

MEA House, constructed in 1972-4 to the designs of Ryder & Yates, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:

* Engineering interest: it has a unique and innovative design incorporating a Vierendeel truss structural arrangement that dispenses with the need for columns, instead suspending the building slabs from deep beams in the penthouse and cantilevered subframes;

* Architectural interest: it is a striking building with a highly distinctive character derived in part from its external form reflecting its structural system, and from the soft reflection in the mirrored Corning glass cladding;

* Accessibility: this was integral to the building's design and can be seen in the provision of an external pedestrian deck (incorporated to connect to Newcastle Corporation's elevated walkway system, which was added later), and the arrangement of accommodation on the lower floors of the building; a specific requirement for many of the occupants;

* Architects: it was designed by Ryder & Yates, one of the most important post-war regional firms in England, and represents their first major building in Newcastle city centre and one of their most prominent works;

* Degree of survival: the exterior is largely unaltered, and whilst the interior is plain and has undergone significant alteration in places, it retains its main stair, which is strongly reminiscent of the work of Berthold Lubetkin, one of Ryder & Yates' main influences and their former employer;

* Social context: it was the first purpose-built building to house multiple community service organisations under a single roof, demonstrating the growing force of the ‘third sector’ in the 1970s.
