180 Brockley Road revealed

The wrapping has now come off 180 Brockley Road to the extent that we can see what impact it will have on the streetscape from both Coulgate Street and Brockley Road. 

I like the massing and mix of materials, especially the metallic roof. I'm not sure how much fun it would be to have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the main entrance to a busy station, but the proportions look good from street level. Likewise, it's hard to tell whether the courtyard will work for residents, but the angles conspire to make the narrow Coulgate Street cottages look like Brockley's answer to the Thin House.
