This week the Architects Journal published a long article on Chips, our apartment building in New Islington. I am pleased to report that they liked it and recognised the tremendous effort that everyone has put into this area. It is sad that the bar is not occupied at the moment as it represents one of the central features of the master plan. i.e: to be able to sit near your home in the centre of the city with a glass of something in your hand and look South over a strip of water and observe people.
We have all tried to create a place where anyone will be happy to sit and do nothing. I think we are well on our way to achieving this and when we have I hope you will come and join me and Tom to watch the world from a cosy urban retreat.
