One of my fave buildings in the city centre.
I’ve always loved the Neo-gothic Oozell Street boarding school better known now as the Ikon Gallery in Brindley Place. Built in 1877 by Joseph Henry Chamberlain it was sympathetically restored and converted into a art gallery in the 1990s. I love the terracotta detailing, arched windows and turrets; it really is a beautiful building.
