Hi guys! Thanks for came by, in this perfect opportunity I will talk about a modern building design which located in Austria. Different with its side building, this modern building has an interesting pattern in its facade, and this being an advantage of the building itself. That’s why I love to talk about this building design. Feel curious yet? Then give it a break!
A few days ago, I have got information about a modern building which called the Bishop’s Square. This impressive building is constructed by the architect Matthew Lloyd Architects. As I said above, this building is located in Spital, Austria. I have try searched the client until I got company name Hammerson UK and Native Land Ltd. By the architect, this building is designed in 2008.
Before the architect start to construct this modern building, they have got a brief; it’s to accommodate both the commercial objectives of the site’s owners and the aesthetic demands of the Grade II Listed St Botolph’s Hall in Spital Square. The completed scheme consist of a new apartment building of 14 one and the two bedroom which are flats above a ground floor restaurant with a single storey clear glass structure which is linking to it to the carefully restored Hall; all three elements of the ground floor such as new building, glass link and St Botolph’s Hall, form a single restaurant unit. The two new buildings now form a pair which sits with a real sense of presence among their much more substantial neighbors.
All effort always causes constraints as usual during all of the construction progress, so does this building. The listed hall sits as one of the few remaining historic elements of Victorian Spitalfields. This condition as a “cause celebre” in the campaign to save the historic Spitalfields has afforded it protection beyond its Grade II listing.
The proposal for the hall’s re-use is involved detailed proposals for repair of the historic fabric, it is including strategies for terracotta cleaning, plaster reinstatement and a full servicing strategy for the restaurant, it is intended to demonstrate the minimum impact on both the internal and the external fabric of the building. To make reference to the listed hall but allow it space to be seen as a stand-alone building once more, the new building adjacent is designed. I think that this is also critical that the new building made a genuine contribution to the new commercial cityscape and it helped to define the recently completed public plaza of the bishop’s Square.
Well guys, this building is an impressive architecture design, isn’t? Ok I hope this information is useful for you guys. Have a nice day!
