We have recently worked with New River Retail as conservation advisors in connection with the redevelopment of listed properties in their extensive pub portfolio. One project involved the assessment of this late 19th century pub, to help identify the merits of the building. At first glance this pub was just another later 19th century building that could be seen on any number of High Streets in any number of towns around the UK. Our compositional analysis demonstrated that the elevation design is actually highly sophisticated, creating an asymmetric composition from symmetrical paired elements.
