This is the most architecturally interesting in the first phase of the new housing (the Accordia development) built on the old government office site. It has gabions of stone at the base and copper sheeting covering the exterior walls. The side at the back is mainly glass, hence the name of the building.

In the background at the right is Brooklands.

The Accordia development (as a whole) was awarded the RIBA Stirling prize for 2008 (this is the top annual UK architecture prize).
