Grand Parade, Skegness

With a design brief to develop a landmark building to replace the entertainment/leisure/amusement premises that was lost during the fire in August 2007. Early designs were more traditional in their approach. A symmetrical building emerged taking architectural direction from the grade ll listed building that had been lost in the fire.

This sympathetic approach resulted in a modern interpretation of the former building. Further discussions with the planning department highlighted that they were looking for a more contemporary building. Sketch designs developed a more decorative style (art deco) with a modern slant was the way the planners wished to proceed. This style of building is synonymous with sea side development and is both traditional and innovative. The style absorbed influences from a variety of sources and movements and introduced a whole range of new or improved materials into the vocabulary of architecture.
