Key quotes from respondents

“It’s very grey. Eastney is a very vibrant community and it would be nice if this was reflected in the colour palette of the building. A mural designed by a local artist would add so much character to the building.”

“Take a look at the ravelin centre! The Scandinavian style and use of recycled and renewable materials are timeless! Anything with natural woods and natural/cream stone will be aesthetically pleasing to the surroundings.”

“Some context to show how the building integrates with it’s immediate surroundings would be good and the site plan could be better presented.”
