Re: Re: Pastiche – The Final Solution?
Well starting at the begining the annex should not have had its preservation removed in this manner, as such this is a hypothetical discussion. If you look at the image for this proposal it is blatently clear that the tallest storey has not been set back as one would have expected if this were an application on a cleared site. The point I was making was about overall height which is actually higher than the front buildings and completely destroys the effect of the very fine chimney stack.
The second area where the building lines have been breached is in relation to the alignment of the windows, which are completely at odds with the existing buildings. Perhaps if one was talking about a cleared site one may condider that an additional floor lower should be sought, for certain this application shouldn’t be in the position it is in due to political influence being used.
