One design issue that was never in question at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi was the colour of the roof cladding.

Chatterley Valley Blue Planet Distribution Centre
If you think you know what a warehouse looks like, even a quick glimpse at the Chatterley Valley Blue Planet distribution warehouse in Newcastle-under-Lyme, North Staffordshire, will confound your expectations. Where most warehouses are rectilinear this one is sinuously curved; where most are of a single dull colour, this one is clad in stripes and different shades of green.
