Too purist I would say.
Its interesting that the IGS would seek permission to replace them actually.
That it would ‘erase a phase of revision / intervention…in terms of the building’s social history and its evolution within the wider historic city context’ is a reasonable point for refusal in this case.
Would anyone wish to comment on where you would draw the line regarding such revisions? By this I mean, if the original windows had been replaced in a later period, or if the two over two windows had been replaced again in the early part of 20th century, would the IGS application have had more validity?
