Former Devonport Hospital
The former Devonport Hospital is a fascinating Modernist design. I was there at the wrong time of the day to get a good photograph of the front facade. It sweeps in a U shape and there are balconies on each of the 3 stories. From what I have read, the complex was planned to be converted into apartments as early as 2004. As one drives past there are high security gates erected and the bulk of the building stands in a vandalized state. A very interesting building that would make a great conversion. Watch this space, as I'll try and post some images of the front facade.
