Located in Brighton city centre, close to the sea front, the site is on Bartholomew Road around Little East Street. It is an existing building that is currently a part of the Green Diamond apartment building. It is attached to the Jurys Inn hotel and located next to Brighton’s Town Hall.
The studio’s brief revolves around pleasure and my project aims to create a space where multiple programmes of pleasure take place. This proposal is a site-specific building that aims to highlight the pleasure of sharing space. I have introduced the concept of a coffee house that aims to brings people together.
A coffee house is a vague concept to a space that could involve many programmes. As we get more involved with our modern life, the use of spaces for social interactions becomes less and more emphasis put on specific people that choose to do a specific activity. Hence, I propose a new concept to a coffee house in Brighton, that can involve different social interactions and programmes within one space. I propose to design a hotel extension that is site specific and can involve a venue for neighbouring buildings.
