While the British Council comes under fire for its portrayal of life for Muslims in the UK as one of unredeemed ugliness and stress, it has put together something far more civilised for itself in its Spring Gardens eyrie off The Mall. In-house architects, led by Emma Vergette, have supervised an HQ renovation programme helped along by Richard Buckley of Buckley Gray Yeoman, with graphics by Studio Myerscough, and a media installation by d-squared. Perhaps the council should be promoting an exhibition of British design excellence.
