Appraisal

This building is of apparent architectural design and detail, and makes a positive and notable addition to the quayside. The materials utilised in it's construction, such as the red brick and ashlar limestone, add colour and textural interest to the streetscape, and articulate the fa├žade of the building. The carved capitals of the engaged limestone columns were clearly executed by skilled craftsmen.
