Gorgeous Art Deco Apartment Building

ID: 9648
County: East Sussex

This apartment block was built in 1938 in the Moderne style and it is located at the seafront end of the High Street. It was built by Charles Neville’s Saltdean Estate Company to the designs of Richard Jones. The building is typical of the period with design features that include a horizontal emphasis, sweeping curves, regimented balconies, pale smooth render and views of the sea. There are 42 flats over 5 floors with commercial units at ground floor level either side of the entrance. It underwent major repair and restoration in 2008. It has clear aesthetic interest and is a good quality example of an inter-war Moderne style apartment building in the streamlined style taking advantage of its seafront location and reflecting the period aesthetic derived from ocean liners. A stunning location for filming and photography!
