It was designed by architect Richard Rogers and built between 1978 and 1986. Bovis was the management contractor for the scheme. Like the Pompidou Centre (designed by Renzo Piano and Rogers), the building was innovative in having its services such as staircases, lifts, electrical power conduits and water pipes on the outside, leaving an uncluttered space inside.

Neat ! thanks for the description. I will look them up. I like the concept.
I think refrigerators should be placed on outside walls only and vented. Why heat the house in the winter and then have the refrigerator running overtime.
Same with the Cook stove the heat should be vented out doors in the summer.
and filtered and recycled for indoor use in the winter.
Kool Thanks for sharing. You certainly put a new twist on this :-)
