    Awesome stairs and lift
    Nice one
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    That lift is lovely. Walked past this place nearly everyday for 3 years, my student halls were around the corner on the left on Newarke Street!
    No risk? No fun

    What a great building, the lift area is stunning - have they removed the whole thing? That almost amounts to vandalism - surely it could have been incorporated into the conversion?
