Location: Worthing, U.K.
Architect: Allies and Morrison
At 15 storeys high – and providing a perfect counterpoint to the modern Splashpoint leisure centre next door – nowhere else in Worthing provides such magnificent panoramic views. Inspired by the best of Worthing’s beautiful seafront architecture – think white stucco, extravagant windows and expressive balconies with delicate metalwork – its distinctive vertical outline is the perfect realisation of the adage ‘form follows function’. Here, balconies and balustrades have been arranged so that every room on every floor has both shelter from the weather and a wide view of the sky. The result is an elegant structure with a gently undulating, transparent surface that is not only a joy to live in, but also a thing of beauty to behold.
The dynamic building will offer access to a private health club featuring a gym, pool, sauna and steam room as well as a resident's lounge and landscaped courtyard to relax in. The development will also feature a new seafront square with a café situated on the promenade and 620m2 of high quality commercial space.
