Four they are jolly good fellows!
This week sees the 4th birthday of the Conran and Partners Brighton studio. Despite the recession kicking in soon after opening, after four years of trading the studio has doubled in size. The team has had some very significant London successes, including winning the project to redevelop Green Man Lane in Ealing to create over 700 new homes for A2Dominion/Rydon, to helping L&Q on their plans for the former Walthamstow Stadium. Most recently they won the project to redevelop the listed Lillian Baylis School in Lambeth.
In Brighton the team is working on the redevelopment of the Granada Cinema site on Portland Road in Hove for Affinity Sutton, further refurbishment of Embassy Court, the modernist landmark on the seafront (top of page), an amazing house on the beach in Hove, proposals for an apart-hotel on the former ice rink site in Queen Square and the city’s greenest office building on Gloucester Place.
Lee Davies and Paul Zara lead the 18-strong team and are confident about the future, despite the state of the world.
“The demand for housing is so great that it must eventually kick-start growth. We have an excellent track record locally and nationally and are well placed to assist our clients in moving their projects forward…
It’s been a very interesting four years, and I am very proud of the team we have built, they have strong skills and we are ready to take on any challenge that comes our way!”
Long may they continue..!
