Newspaper buildings are often thought of as utilitarian; in many cases, they are low-cost industrial sheds. The new headquarters for The Western Morning News Co. in Derriford, Plymouth, challenges that image. The building is almost entirely clad in ‘Planar’ glazing, allowing the complete newspaper production process, from journalist to delivery van, to be visible from the outside, producing a building of considerable drama.
