Current Building: The building currently feels very cold and unwelcoming, as well as inappropriate for the site.
Possible Modification – A: As discussed earlier, a possible solution for the building might be to re-clad it. The hacking of the building on the image above shows the addition of recycled timber cladding and repainting of the blue window frames into white to match the rest of the buildings. The introduction of timber to the area can reduce the cold and often unwelcoming feeling of the industrial area and connect it the housing and green areas.
Possible Modification – B: A further addition of red brick cladding will relate to the housing typologies and many of the industrial buildings.
