Yes, overall it’s of a high standard. Although it’s a pity that they’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. They’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 façade. Small issues I know, but God is in the detail…

I agree with vinnyfitz about the branding, definitely could have been applied more subtly.
