Re: Re: Most Beautiful Building in Cork?
I noticed a few days back that the Queens Old Caste looked absolutley rotten. For such a beautiful building, they make it look awful. Surely some organisation can force Argos or Virgin to paint it or do something to it anyway. It spoils the area!
I don’t know what you’re talking about. The building is painted white and looks clean and well-maintained.
The problem with the building is that you have to blot out the ground floor when you look at it because some idiot (either Virgin or a tenant before them) decided to put short Greek Doric columns with plain Doric capitals at their bases ( 😀 ) in the shop entrance, to “follow” the well-executed pedimented Greek Doric feature in the 1st floor. The result is disastrous – no proportional logic between the upper & lower part of the building.
