Is it a new school?


Recommended Posts

Or is it a library?  Or perhaps an arts centre?  No, its the proposed new fire station for the site of the former Working Boys Home on Bath Street.


Tomorrow's Hereford Times should provide an image of this hybrid monster, which Cllrs Bramer and Johnson are determined to inflict on the city, in place of the handsome group of Victorian buildings known as the Working Boys Home: one of the largest surviving testaments to one of Hereford's most distinguished citizens, Rev John Venn.


Such is the paucity of 21st century design thinking, that this production line architectural extrusion (by Cushman & Wakefield) could quite easily masquerade as one of half-a-dozen building types.


He behoves us all to watch vigilantly for notice of Hereford & Worcester Fire Authority's formal planning application in July and send in our comments.
