Restello by Piercy Conner Architects

I am not usually the kind of person who judges from the image... But  I have to say that the external renderings of this building are seriously atmospheric (to put it one way). Might not big the best architecture but the way the perforated steel makes this building disappear from the outside (except when the shutters are open) and opens the space to the exterior is well done. The effects of the light and shadow going trough the interior, and the openness inside the houses with the simplicity it projects. The used of a second skin completely glazed...
I don't know, I just have to like it. Also the detail of the green roof treated the same way as the rest of the flats its brilliant.
