Praise for SIREWALL from Foster + Partners
“In just one visit you cut across 12 months of technical presentations, descriptions, and specifications by us which had been met with doubt, scepticism and interrogation on the part of the Client. The political decision maker and other members of the Client body were convinced there and then. SIREWALL is of its time, but is timeless. It is a more appropriate and more solid form of construction, better adapted to climatic variation, comfort and low energy consumption. It responds to a desire for authenticity of local materials, colours and textures – and is a beautiful material.” Hugh Stewart, Partner
