Re: Re: ILAC centre
I have to say. I don’t think the Henry St Facade is as horrible and unsensitive as people here seem to think.
Taking it, as a building by itself. I like the proportions and symmetry. Even taking it in context, it maintains the height of the streetscape. I also like how it continues some of the lines along the streetscape, while breaking others, creating an interesting conflict with the adjacent buildings.
The one major critisism I have of it, is the choice of stone. It clashes pretty badly with the red brick around it. I think they should have chosen a stone, which would have complemented the surroundings much better. maybe a light coloured limestone or portland stone.
