#LaurensHouse in #LonsdaleStreet is a building that just wasn’t highlighted until the @nationaltrustvic started doing a review of CBD post war stuff a few years ago, and I said (or maybe it was someone else) said what about this one with the 50s #pinktiles? Turns out to be 1956 (top 3 floors added 1961), and the architect was #HaroldBloom, about whom I know nothing. Great intact aluminium #curtainwall, with al #spandrels that look a bit like #traydeck actually, and nice pink tiled surround.
