Refurbishment & top floor extension to an interesting Modernist or International Style house right on the beach front at West Worthing. Built 1934 this house was in very poor condition with a poorly organised plan but had spaces termed “telephone” and “observation” room with the fenestration simply a reflection of the latest architectural fashion of the 1930s with a tank & observation room as a plain rendered “tower” simply finished with a wet run cornice.
The brief was to extend the top storey, resolving the external problems and and create a simple contemporary interior, upgrade the interior and fixtures. The articulation of the extension was carefully detailed to retain the expression of the original tower with new sitting room, sun deck and enlarged observation room.
Our work on this property was published by Jane Crittenden in a 5 page spread in Coast Magazine:
