Re: Re: new building attached to the Fitzwilliam hotel
Yes, overall itâ€™s of a high standard. Although itâ€™s a pity that theyâ€™ve gone and saved costs by using faceted glazing at the entrance (as opposed to curved sheets); flat sheets or panels can work on a curve if they have a relatively narrow width, but the large sheets here make it look quite clunky. Theyâ€™ve also used steel uprights to support the glazing at street level. For a high prestige location & client surely they could have used a superior system to achieve an uninterrupted faÃ§ade. Small issues I know, but God is in the detailâ€¦
I agree with vinnyfitz about the branding, definitely could have been applied more subtly.
