Hi everyone :)

Firstly, thanks to Layz for giving a heads up on this place, I wouldn't have found it without his help.

I love the architecture on this building, it is an intriguing maze of walkways, corridors and assorted rooms.
I unfortunately didnt find a way into the tower :( but I will revisit sometime I hope.

Here are my pics:

I saw the same things in Forest Mills, anyone know what they are? I suspect they are for fitting clothes...
