The project was an opportunity to refurbish a derelict building through a contemporary but sensitive remodelling in the historic legal district and Markets quarter of the city, an area of important townscape character. The building that ORS had looked at was a rather ‘sturdy’ looking red brick building probably built late 19th or early 20th century. It was reasonably well proportioned, although perhaps a little ‘squat’ and looked as though it wanted to be a little taller. The windows to May Street were simple and evenly spaced and the ground floor was divided into four structural bays by solid brick piers.
