This minimal furniture showroom is worth a mention. Concrete and framed floor to ceiling glass form a warehouse like space on which furniture is placed on poured polished concrete floors.
Of special interest are the clever ceiling rafts that mask off the sprayed out ceiling slab above with cut outs for suspended lighting and features.
If i designed such a magnificent building to host a sporting event watched by the public and then didn’t receive a single invitation or ticket to said sporting event I would be less than impressed.
The building has recently found its way back in to the news, not because the olympics start in less than 24 hours time, but sadly for the wrong reasons….Dezeen recently reported that a dispute has occured between LOCOG and the award winning architect over 600 tickets that have been sold to spectators that will have restricted views of the top diving board events.
