PLANS for a ‘landmark’ new building in town have been unanimously approved.
The Planning Committee voted by seven in favour of the scheme to redevelop Ingouville House, near the Arts Centre, with members praising its design and architecture.
It has been labelled a ‘landmark building in Jersey’ by PF+A Architecture – the architects behind the scheme – who argue the overall project would act as a ‘regeneration to the area, providing opportunities to hold performative and cultural events within the spaces’.
But it has divided opinion on social media. Some have described the building as ‘stunning’ and ‘exciting’, and said the design will help modernise town.
Others have described it as ‘hideous’ and a ‘blot on the landscape’, with one commentator saying it looked like something from the computer game Minecraft.
Another said it looks like it is clad in kryptonite.
