I think that the new block of flats is very attractive, the concave elevation echoes the curve of the Revenue building on the other side of Stamford Street
really nicely. The dark colour is attractive and the detailing on the balconies is interesting and I think that the juxtaposition with the freshly-painted white chapel porch (which was a crumbling ruin before) is really striking. Of course it's not the bland pastiche architecture which finds favour these days; it dares to be modern. The real crime is that the flats were built on the playground of the naval school.
