Customary birthday celebrations took place chez Richard Rogers, where the office was on hand to listen to Marco Goldschmied propose a toast to. . . Carmel Lewin, also of the Rogers office, and who shares a birthday with the Great Man. I also bump into party-girl Carmel at the 40th birthday celebration of Simon Allford of AHMM, who has just moved into a tasteful top-floor bachelor flat off Baker Street.
Allford has already starting transforming the mansion block which contains his flat. Mirrorglass tiles in the lift have been replaced by touchy-feely carpet.
