:uhoh: The sheer number of spiders that must live there...


Very cool though, on a serious note. Must be an external lattice the vines latch on to (?). Provides a little shade for the building too. Aesthetically, it softens the glass and concrete building as well. I wonder where this is. First time I've seen one of these that's not an image of a futuristic building concept.

I live near CP and have never really looked up on that angle to see how shrubby it actually is. I will have a decent look next time I wander past.

The only shame is:

A). They don't seem to be doing the other building opposite in the same way.

B). Sushizilla shut down - it was my favourite :frown:

The Palace cinema has the best standard seats I've ever sat in at a cinema and the bar is fantastic

Who has to prune all that?

I can't see the available root volume supporting that amount of foliage for very long.


Effectively adding a live load once the wind comes into play, though you'd imagine they'd have that sorted. Natural light won't be great, piss poor for passive solar and doesn't look like there is anything edible. Looks good though.

At the risk of incurring the Wrath of Smilie* (I happen to think discussion of the Entertaining Pics is a valid, nay, important, component) I would imagine that it would dramatically decrease the collateral damage to birdlife.

*I've relented and added a pic, although it's not necessarily 'Entertaining'.

Hasn't the restaurant shutdown, but there's a takeaway version now? Also, those seats are awesome unless you're in the front row. And, the screens are a bit small - I'd go there more often if they had slightly larger screens.

So as not to offend the pic posting gods, Spice Alley just next door:

Yeah, still has takeaway but nowhere near as good.

I don't mind the screen size as the cinemas are cozy.

The old pub on the corner of Abercrombie is getting renoated as well:

I thought so at first, but no. See the wires go into the trigger on the drill? So guess he's relocated the trigger so he can start/stop the drill from the handlebars. But the dynamo idea is the next logical step.

Now I haven't been a skinny runt in a long, long while so am not sure if this applies to everyone, but note how the two largest lads on the flanks have boards under the chair legs so they don't sink into the dirt!

Father, son and Holy Ghost?

Can't really fit "son" in though, so nul points.

I hope this works - it's a closed group on FB so may not
