The junction of Heathcoat Street and Goosegate with the Adam's Building on the sky line. In constructing Phase 1 of the Adam's Building between 1854-74, the architect, T.C. Hine, included 'lace lofts' at roof level where the walls were almost entirely built from glass. These were designed to ensure that the maximum amount of natural lighting was encouraged to enter the interiors of the lace finishing and lace repair shops. This concept was deemed extremely innovative at the time and it was quickly adopted by the other lace factories in Nottingham. At roof top level a roof-light is visible, an additional method used for getting more natural light into any workshop beneath it. The Grade II-listed Adam's Building is currently being used by New College Nottingham.
