View across Pickering Place of the hand made white brick facade


The cellars excavated below the new building vaulted in terracotta tiles to the Guastavino Brothers' system calculated out by Michael Ramage at Cambridge University



The rear elevation perched up four storeys in the air on slender colonettes rising through a glass lens



Detail of the white brick elevation emerging through glass


The new building folding into the white glazed tiled re-entrant of Norman Shaw's original building
