So far the place looks like the reception building at a large holiday camp. I assume there is a luxurious canteen and bar on the premises.

What a complete eyesore, as for a luxury canteen and bar, I doubt that very much, staff are not provided for like that anymore. Gone are those days!

I was going to start a thread about how completely execrable this new building is, but I might as well say it here instead:
- Absolutely no sense of civic gravitas;
- Lame noughties architectural cliches: bit of white render, bit of cedar, battleship grey windows;
- Windows completely out-of-scale with the street;
- Wacky shape-making, to zero architectural effect.
I hate it. A colleague of mine was talking to the bloke who designed it and he's very proud apparently. How depressing.
What's even worse: what will happen to the tradition of the CSBS archbishop hurling abuse at Plod when he gives his address on the 5th??

Down and Out - Exactly. It puts me in mind of that awful 'sustainable' house on the way to the station. Same architect?

I've never understood why they didn't just keep the wonderful facade of the Henry Card 1884 building in West Street and just build behind it. It was a great building with a great history in the ideal location.

I'm sure it will be nice and comfy inside! Lets be faie Plod does have to have somewhere nice to hide whilst waiting for his shift to finish

Down and Out, I agree completely. Another appalling building in the conservation area. How do they get through the net?

Clifford - it was designed, I understand, by a company called Parsons Brinckerhoff, who are a massive worldwide engineering and project managing consultancy with a very small architects department. They design amazing sewers, railway tunnels and motorway junctions across the world. And rubbish police stations in small towns in Sussex.

@sleeveless, I suspect your threshold for "evidence" is considerably less when it comes to smearing someone like Jeremy Corbyn or... more
