The concrete wall will be partly covered by red 'siding"- with viewing windows - and the area will all be landscaped - see: http://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Projects/Leslie_Barns/index.jsp I am reserving judgement on how all this softens the "Fort Leslie" look but .....
Huh. Interesting. A little bit nicer, if it actually gets executed properly. Time will tell. I have a feeling the design will date pretty quickly.
