With its new brick facade, the Willow Grove Branch not only looks a lot more like a building, it's actually kind of pretty. Not that raw construction doesn't look good, per se, but you can see now the promise of the architectural drawings we've been looking at for a while. Just try to see past all the dirt and construction equipment, and there's a quite attractive building underneath.
And if that wasn't enough, take a look at what's just been installed on the roof of the building:
Not the HVAC unit. The skylight in front of it. There you go. Not to discount the beauty of a properly installed heating and air conditioning system, but the skylight probably has it beat in terms of pure aesthetics. Here it is from another angle:
And the view from the dance studio? Pretty spectacular, especially on a day as beautiful as the one on which this picture was taken. The skylight is centered right above the dance studio floor.
More pictures of the construction can be found on our Facebook page, including some shots of the acid wash used on the brick facade, and a closer look at that HVAC unit.
