Architect sought for Eastbourne leisure centre revamp
Eastbourne Borough Council is seeking an architect to overhaul its Devonshire Park entertainment and leisure complex
A conservation architect-led multi-disciplinary design team is sought to overhaul the high-profile seaside attraction.
The town centre complex includes the Grade II-listed Devonshire Park Theatre designed by Frank Matcham, the Floral Hall, Congress Theatre, Winter Garden and several tennis courts.
The regeneration project includes the refurbishment of Devonshire Park’s three main auditorium and the replacement of additional conference facilities with a new ‘welcome centre’.
A new café, restaurant and bar are also planned alongside improved tennis facilities, landscaping and public realm.
London-based Marks Barfield revealed a £35 million masterplan for the regeneration of the plot in December 2012.
Five practices will be shortlisted following PQQs. The design contract is expected to run for 68 months and be worth around £2 million.
The deadline for requests to participate is 7 May.
