also known as ’163 PRS / olivers place’ in prestons, england, here are more
images and an update of the project.yesterday it was announced that permission
has been granted to construct the 40 000 square foot office building.

the primary architectural expression of the building is through an array
of anodised aluminium fins, cantilevered from vertical support brackets on
all four façades of the building. The aluminium fins, are all oriented
in the same direction.
