Plans for an unusual housing scheme in Liverpool have been given planning permission and a glowing endorsement from the Royal Fine Art Commission. The scheme on Kings Dock, by Patrick Davies, features curved steel roofs and stainless steel mesh balconies to create four-, five- and seven-storey buildings around a courtyard. The rfac called it 'a bold and adventurous but well-balanced modern design'.
