This evening I went on a Google maps adventure. Streetview is an architectural student's best friend - when you can't get back to site, you can visit via the world wide web. Every morning I go past two blocks of flats which always catch my eye, but I could only locate them from the railway line, not knowing which street they're on. But I found them!
The first is Bear Lane by Panter Hudspith Architects. I really like the mix of shapes and window sizes all kept consistent by buff brick. The second is O-Central by Space Craft. It's the extruded wooden balconies which I like. Even thoough I feel like I'm not actively researching architecture after a busy day, subconciously I'm absorbing all the time!
