'High quality materials should be proposed because of the location on a nationally significant Processional Way.'
The proposal draws on the materials found locally and throughout the city to develop a building of this scale to fit in its context.
The primary materials proposed are proposed to be a mix of brown, blue and red facing bricks, blue tinted glazing within light grey framing and bronze coloured metal cladding and projecting features. In Summary the Materials proposed are: (from street level upwards)
It is envisaged that the metal panels to oriel windows will be clad on one side with these perforated panels ensuring openings do not provide views through. The projecting metal frames grouping the windows vertically in 3 sections will also be formed in the bronze colour, without perforations.
