Substation architecture, at least they had a go.

Original post 31 October 2019

The new #substation in #WaratahPlace in the city, by @co_opstudio, it’s not bad, some interest and texture, but I’m still annoyed they couldn’t do it with tiles that looked like #redbrick instead of the popular very dark brown, and that they said the half-tiles were going to be in a contrasting (red) colour, referring to the earlier Deco facade, but they’re not ! The circular windows in the side refer, but you hardly see them. The arched facade is on the next lane, #HeffernanLane, and you can see the detail of the #LEDlights in the projecting bricks, which are / will do some subtle pattern, which is nice, but not necessary imho.
