Newport



Newport, not Wales and not Rhode Island!

One of a handful of buildings which were allowed before a blanket ban on heights restricted buildings to three, five or ten stories. It's not a masterpiece by any means, but stands as a fine example of early eighties residential architecture, and all that wasn't quite right about it. Of course the "front" of the building is all balcony and glass, facing the ocean view.

One of my early graphics teachers used to rail against vertical lettering, so I have my own prejudice around the name graphic I'm afraid.

Vertical lettering is easier on the neck. But we all need something to rail against.

It looks a bit nicer than Newport in Wales anyway!
