Excessive and incorrect use of ellipsis. Unforgivable...
Hailing from the region I have to say it is an inspired design, that sensitively address' the historical context of the castle and region as a whole. It is a shame that an area of the country which doesn't receive that much in terms of arts patronage and even less so in accessible quality contemporary architecture, chooses to respond so negatively as opposed to forming a constructive dialogue with all parties.
This feels like political grandstanding and parochial Nimbyism at its most reductive . I hope that CADW and the Flintshire planners aren't swayed by this.
Comment on: Rhyl's landmark Sun Centre set for demolition
Really glad that this had been highlighted, I have very fond memories of this rightly described 'landmark' its a shame how council mismanagement led to its closing down and subsequent status of being set for demolition.
The current plans for the redevelopment of whats in its direct vicinity look very disappointing indeed and don't really seem to capture the seaside town spirit. Alas if this was south of the Watford Gap I'm sure it would still be a destination...
Enjoyed the 80's clipping as well. Thanks for raising it's (and by virtue the towns) profile.
its in a good location, separated from the more traditional vernacular buildings and looks visually striking. Best wishes and good luck its a lovely area that needs more contemporary architecture (including the wonderful Stanton Williams Whitby Abbey Museum [sic).
