The White House

It's coming to something when a conversion of a pair of old railway cottages to a taxi office is looked on as some sort of 'good' thing. This newly painted up pair were destined to be converted into yet another restaurant to go along with the dozen or so others on Princes Avenue. A steel and glass extension was to have been clagged onto the side to "combine the best features of the period dwellings with high quality, sustainable design" (judge for yourself  here). The owners now feel there is "an over-provision of restaurants in the area" oh really? Surely not ...

  1. Uggh... the addition wouldn't work. We see that sort of thing here sometimes in old neighbourhoods, a house added in as infill that clashes with everything around it.

    I like the bright colours highlighting the door and frames.
