Holy Balcony!

SOMETIMES IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE WHAT ARCHITECTS AND BUILDERS GET AWAY WITH THESE DAYS. Look at the picture (click to enlarge as ever)…

… yes, that’s right, the balcony floor is perforated with holes!

Holes! Imagine a bloke in a kilt or a woman in a skirt — the folks below, and possibly on the street below could look right up and catch an eyeful!

Apart from that, though, what if you spilled your drink, dropped your cigarette or worse – what if you puked? Boy, the neighbours would love that!

In a rain-soaked British city, it makes no sense to have perforated verandas; there’s no shelter, no privacy and no sense to it — yet this is not merely confined to ugly new flats on Pollokshaws Road, but also to many supposedly-swanky riverside apartments!
