Comment on: John Pardey reveals Lutyens inspired house
The Lutyens reference is a bit lost on me, but I have never seen a John Pardy house I wouldn't want to live in!
I never fail to be impressed by these guys' work. Having just got back from Copenhagen and wandered through their recently completed Vartov Square, they are flying the flag for young Irish Architects across Europe. A future collaboration would be delightful!
I had heard rumblings, but had hoped they were just that. They are some of the nicest and most gifted architects we have ever had the good fortune to work with. Manchester will be less of a place without MBLA, and I hope Ian, Andy and the rest of the team come back with renewed vigor.

Well done Peter Drummond!! I always thought you looked like a nice bloke in the profiles and you have just proved it. A bit of humility, appreciation for your competitors and empathy of how tough it is out there. As for the vitriolic among you - save it for Mr Gove!!
