Within this frame each panel changes in response to the changing architectural context, from the Georgian buildings on one side to the 1960's office block on the other. The first bay contains abstracted Georgian proportions, with narrow windows set within a predominately stone façade. The second and third bays fracture this formality, as the stone elements visually dissolve through asymmetrical patterns into a fully glazed final bay.
At the rear of the scheme a series of complex rights to light issues have eroded what would have been the building's ideal shape. In response the building has been stepped back through a series of terraces covered by a curving glass roof. Here again the restraints on the design are translated into positive compositional devices. Each device, when seen in its context, sets up a visual language of correspondence between the constraint and its solution.
