1. 75 Holland Road, Hove – English Heritage has listed the building at Grade II for its architectural and historical importance. Neighbouring Hove developed later in response to Brightons growth, principally as an area with streets of spacious. Brighton was a pioneer in the movement, it adopted Robert Owens ideas very early. A journal, The Co-operator, was started soon afterwards by local doctor William King, it helped inspire the Rochdale Pioneers, other associations were formed elsewhere in Brighton and Hove in 1846,1860 and 1887. The firm consisted of Thomas Lainson, a Brighton man who had designed buildings of all types around the two towns since the early 1860s, and his sons Thomas J. and Arthur and their first building for the Association was Palmeira House, an office building designed in 1887. It stood at the top of the late Regency/Italianate Palmeira Square residential development, six years later, the Association required an annexe to Palmeira House, to be used for storage of large and fragile items, distribution and the stabling of horses and early motor vehicles. Assisted by his sons, Thomas Lainson designed and built the repository in 1893 and its elaborate design, in red brick with extensive use of terracotta and wrought iron and with a steep roof, contrasted with the formal stucco of Palmeira House and the surrounding area. A plaque installed over the entrance recorded the date and architects names, the removal and distribution company Pickfords took over the building in 1950. Work took place between July 2004 and 2006, the former repository was listed at Grade II by English Heritage on 31 May 1974. As of February 2001, it was one of 1,124 Grade II-listed buildings and structures, the repository has been described as a fine work by the prolific Thomas Lainson. It was designed distinctively in the French Second Empire style with some Queen Anne elements, Lainson made lavish use of terracotta to decorate the building, which is mostly of red brick with slate mansard roofs. The design is U-shaped and encloses a gated courtyard, apart from the centre bay on the Holland Road elevation, which rises to four storeys with an attic storey above, the building is three-storey with attics. The Holland Road façade has nine bays in a 1,3,1,3,1 formation, the three-bay sections being slightly recessed. The outermost bays are topped by elaborate gables which hide the attic space, some of the other windows have prominent transoms and mullions of terracotta, they vary between round-headed and flat-arched. The doorway is arched, this time in the segmental style. The roofs are steep and are topped with parapets of wrought iron, Grade II listed buildings in Brighton and Hove, E–H
2. 1830 warehouse, Liverpool Road railway station – The 1830 warehouse, Liverpool Road, Manchester, is a 19th-century warehouse that forms part of the Liverpool Road railway station complex. It was built in five months between April and September 1830, almost certainly the Liverpool architect Thomas Haigh, the British Listed Buildings survey attributes the work to George Stephenson and his son, Robert. It is a Grade I listed building as of 8 May 1972, the warehouse is of red brick in Flemish bond, with sandstone dressings and slate roofs. It is three storeys high, though only two storeys present to the level of the railway to allow for loading and unloading. At the ground floor at street level, carts could also direct access. The internal structure is of timber, but with columns in the basement. The processing of goods within the warehouse was originally a manual operation, the steam system of 1831 was replaced with a hydraulic system between 1866 and 1880 to increase efficiency. The restoration of the warehouse was undertaken in 1992–6 by the Building Design Partnership
3. Adams Building, Nottingham – The Adams Building, on Stoney Street, is the largest building in the Lace Market district of Nottingham, England. Formerly a lace showroom and warehouse, it is probably the largest and finest example of a Victorian lace warehouse to survive in the country, the building is Grade II* listed now forms part of the City campus of New College Nottingham. Opened on 10 July 1855, the building is named after its original owner Thomas Adams, a Victorian industrialist with strong Quaker views and a deep social conscience. He selected the Nottingham architect Thomas Chambers Hine and between them, they created a building which, for a variety of social and architectural reasons, is quite unique. As it now exists, the Adams Building is the product of distinct phases of construction from 1854 to around 1874. The earliest phase is the building facing Stoney Street, with its elaborate symmetrical frontage behind a railed courtyard and it was designed as a lace showroom and warehouse, in which lace products brought in from outlying factories were finished off and then sold. The main display area seems to have been a two-storey lightwell in the centre of the building, originally lit by gas lamps. Secondary areas were used for mending and packing, the main power-source was a steam engine to the rear, with hydraulic engines for the hoists and packing machines. Maximum lighting was provided for the repair and finishing shops. Hine provided lace lofts at roof level whose walls were almost entirely built from glass and these lace lofts were innovative in their time and quickly became a characteristic of Nottinghams then-thriving lace manufacturing industry. This architectural motif can still be seen throughout the Lace Market today, as a committed philanthropist, Thomas Adams was determined to provide humane conditions and good facilities for his workforce. A large area of the basement was designed as a chapel where more than 500 workers and managers would take part in a service before starting work. Indoor toilets, washing facilities and tea rooms were provided for staff, heating was provided by a mixture of coal and patent warm-air flues brought through ducts from a heat exchanger at the boiler. These amenities were at the forefront of mid-Victorian factory design, TC Hine adopted a distinctly Anglo-Italian style for the principal elevations. In places, this appears redolent of the 15th century Palazzo Ricardi in Florence and his chosen materials were plain brick, moulded brick and local Derbyshire and Ancaster stone. At the time, the size and grandeur of the building was in contrast with the other industrial buildings in the vicinity. A local newspaper described it as the finest erection in the Midlands, the building was later extended along St Marys Gate to the rear, and finally, along Warser Gate. In the process, this incorporated a building at the end of Kings Place and these later blocks were much more plain and functional, and it is possible that they were built speculatively, perhaps for rent as tenement lace factories

Its façade is pink-brown sandstone, brick and marble while the elevations, where the service and workers entrances were located, are in glazed white brick. The warehouse loading bays are between the blocks and were linked to the rooms in the basement by shafts. The working areas above were plain with large windows to allow in natural light, orders were packed there and sent to the basement on hoists powered by Manchesters hydraulic power system and packed into bales using hydraulic presses before dispatch. The warehouse was lighted by gas, asia House was converted for residential use in 2003 and the basement is a car park.
