Seen in Kings Heath

This beautifully composed facade, with three matching gables, is near the railway tracks on the end of a row of terraces. The workshops stretch all the way to the back of the plot and there is access to a good sized yard. I love the way the ground floor windows match so well with the first floor even though they so different. Symmetry and the repetiton of the square glazed lights give the centre panel – which is really an industrially flavoured shopfront – the ceremony of a classical composition.
