John Wardle in Spring Street

First posted Instagram 28 February 2020

A bit of fun design from @johnwardlearchitects; the angular brick I mean #bricktile entry to the office block he designed plonked on top of the #ElmsFamilyHotel. I like it, though better in #redbrick like the old buildings either side, and like the little industrial bldg it replaced. In fact could have used recycled bricks from it or the guts of the pub which were indeed reused to rebuild the ‘side wall’ of the pub, a bit of a failed gesture though, it’s not obviously continuous with the front wall, nor the inside of the ex-pub, so it just reads like a foyer feature. Yes I do know better then the architect sorry John.
