New Look Lopdell House

New Look Lopdell House

Yesterday the remaining bits of the scaffold came off Lopdell House, showing the new shape: the top floor from the 1980’s has come off (now again a roof terrace), and the facade has received a less contrasty paint job (street level still boarded up). The exterior is expected to be completed by Christmas, whilst the interior might take until February, from which time on the building will be able to be used again. Behind the construction fence on the right, the new addition to the gallery is growing, roughly at street level now (completion probably August/September 2014 — thanks to Andrew Clifford, Lopdell House Gallery Director, for information.)

Pictures of various stages in the history of Lopdell House can be found here. Link to an impression of the final result.
