Following the opening of Coal Drops Yard on 26 October, Ike Ijeh from Building Magazine shares his view of the project. 

“…chief among this catalogue of curios is the thrusting twin attic itself. Despite its improbable and perhaps even implausible gait, it forms a brilliantly inventive and irrepressibly theatrical way to insert a contemporary component into a heritage building through manipulation of the very heritage assets – in this case its roof and its idiosyncrasy – that form that building’s core identity. And in doing so it provides the kind of operatic spectacle that enlivens the conventional shopping experience.”
