Newcastle, Groat Market, Thomson House
Circa 1964, printing works and offices for the Newcastle Journal and Evening Chronicle by Cackett, Burns Dick & Mackellar. Portland stone, dark grey mosaic, grid structure. Not sympathetic to the surroundings, but the rhythm of floor levels and bay divisions was intended to echo the 19th century town hall, framing the view of the cathedral and castle.
