This was a proposal for a commercial building to replace a demolished building on the corner of Colombo and Hereford Streets. It was prepared for a developer to pitch to the land-owner, and did not proceed. The version shown to the land-owner was finished in smooth plaster instead of red brick. The idea was to create an attractive, versatile and timeless building able to be assembled relatively inexpensively from a small kitset of precast concrete components. The building was modelled by James Carr and rendered by Nick Treloar at W2 Limited.

A simple two storey neoclassical corner building with a brick clad upper floor and a rusticated stone base with arched openings. A delicate glass canopy shelters the footpath.
