TQ3181 : Hill House, Shoe Lane

Hill House, Shoe Lane
Hill House, Shoe Lane
An office block with windows deeply set into a moulded concrete frame, and a pronounced stair-tower. By the Ronald Fielding Partnership, 1975-79. As well as offices, the building houses a public library in the basement, using foundations, Pevsner notes, laid c1960 for the Daily Telegraph's printing works but never used as such.
As a building material, concrete is currently widely detested, but in my humble opinion it has its place. It has a variety of colours and textures, and would at least provide relief from the ubiquity of shiny, multi-coloured glass boxes with random sticky-out bits.
