The client and the architects have addressed the somewhat contradictory demands of conservation and commerce. The team has worked with stakeholders English Heritage to find a balance between retaining the Brutalist language while changing public perception of the building.

New iridescent coloured panels give the street frontage a changing face while not challenging the original architecture. The result is visually striking without losing any of the original Modern look – the ‘streets in the sky’ live on.
