Students put the art in heart at residential home

By Pamela Ballantine

Residents at Palmerston Residential Home in East Belfast had their lives brightened up after art students were challenged to create a design that would invite curiosity and encourage them to use the outdoor space.

Students from the University of Kansas worked on the project created by Luke Englert, called Day and Night. It was unveiled to rapturous applause.

It is very important in business to get your premises right, so when someone else goes to the bother of doing all the hard work it makes your life so much easier, which is what the tenants have discovered in the Scottish Provident Building. This architectural gem in Belfast city centre is home to more than 70 companies of all sizes, and the latest phase in the building's resurrection has been unveiled to reveal premises that look more like a boutique hotel than a workplace.

I must admit the mention of a biomass heating and cooling system is not going to excite too many people, but when it is installed in Ireland's only Ferrari and Maserati dealer, Charles Hurst, it does become more attractive.

Add the lure of the beautiful Italian sports car and it was enough to entice customers down to see what all the fuss was about. Talk about looking cool while keeping cool.
