Appraisal

This building is a notable and positive addition to the streetscape, due to the scale and form of the building. The building is of apparent architectural design and detail, and the fa├žade is articulated by the square-headed and round-headed openings, and by the string courses. The variety of materials utilised in it's construction, such as the red brick, yellow brick and grey limestone, add colour and textural interest to the streetscape. The carved limestone arcade to the ground floor is a particularly notable feature of the building, and was clearly executed by skilled craftsmen.
