Heritage and modern styles collide in shiny shiny building on Pentonville Road

shiny top building

An odd new building has been completed at the very busy, hectic junction between Pentonville Road and Kings Cross Road. As the photo shows it has a very shiny glass top on top of a plain Victorian exterior.  As you move around the planes of the mirror show shifting views. According to the blurb it lights up at night.  Otherwise, the heritage shop front patterns and brickwork are nicely done.  Some will think it striking, others won’t be so sure.  It’s commerical/retail unit.  As you walk around that area, it’s salutary what a bad road system it is.
