Sir: I was delighted to see that Erich Mendelsohn's architectural masterpiece in Old Church Street, Chelsea appears unchanged from the photographs I saw at the age of 14 in 1948 looking through F. R. S. Yorke's book, The Modern House.

May I suggest that a compromise could be made over its future. New windows, which would appear almost invisible, in the form of white translucent glass panes, flush with the wall face and visually frameless, could be an answer.

Yours faithfully,
