I live just off The Cut
and have to say that I find it extraordinary that anyone would want to preserve such a ghastly building. As I walk by it virtually everyday I often fantasise about demolishing this genuine carbuncle. It doesn't hamonise with either the Vic nor the other properties around - today it would never get planning.
Many years ago I used to direct at the Vic and had an office in the building; it was equally awful inside! I don't think anything can be done to make it pleasing to the eye but at the moment it looks totally neglected and needs some tlc.
I'm sure someone, somewhere will talk up the virtues of this horror and I look forward to reading their posts.
