This building would be perfect for Belfield (and no, that’s not damning with faint praise- I like Belfield), but I’m not sure how well it works in this location (better than what it replaced, no doubt, but we’re surely entitled to more than the ‘better than a pile of crap’ argument by now).

Graham- the ‘subtle little setback’ you mention is only a setback because the front wall projects beyond the building line. Power games, pure and simple. And the ‘buffer strip’ approach is the lazy answer to an admittedly thorny design conundrum.

Also, I way prefer the front to the side.
