Glazed street façades are hidden behind a perforated cast iron façade. The pattern of the perforations derived from the floral motif of a coalhole cover found on the pavement. The curtain on all three façades is a response to the brick skin stretched on the facades of the neighbouring houses punctured by the regular grid of windows. The gentle repetitive pattern of the façade seeks to provide ornament and abstraction.
