Block of flats built along Woodside Avenue in North Finchley in London.Iteresting building that draws the attention thanks to its contemporary design and a fresh look in between the surrounding detached houses from different periods.
Use of brick is still very characteristic for this area of London, but big aluminium windows with a very asymetric subdivisions, and a very contemporary flat roofs are really standing out – very surprising especially for me dealing with the planning councill for the area.
I often pass by this intriguing building and though it would be worth to share it with other people – will you agree with my point of view ?
A residential building in North London.
Todays special.- The building has been freshly constructed.
No google and no other searching engine can find this building in any directory bacause the pictures have been taken in our architectural office and not published so far.
You can see the building is very, very simple but you can not deny it has that something that x factor that
defines good architecture.
The entrance fronton resambles th Grand arch in Paris, but here you can see it in a much softer incarnation, and the architect did not commit a suiside.
To sum up, it was a quick project, not much effort put to it but the effect is really tremendous.
Well done, Mr.N 😉
Dublin – Very interesting place to live in, especially in the end of the last decade .
Very often buildings were constructed of very good quality, and well finished materials, also you could notice an interesting trend in architecture and design generally to use materials of natural origin, more often then it was happening in previous years.
It is kept in a small , very human scale and one can feel a freshness of ideas and a friendly enviroment very the priority to the designer.
The attention to details and thoughtfull and fresh use of composition , calls for a special appreciation.
