Scott Brownrigg + Turner
Scott Brownrigg + Turner has produced this design for the seafront at Weston-Super-Mare. The scheme redevelops the Tropicana swimming pool and aims to produce an iconic design containing Art Deco references that echo the seaside resort and the old Tropicana building it will replace. The 'exuberant' architecture will 'evoke the exhilaration of a day at the seaside'. It will contain a swimming pool, a five-screen cinema, a ten-pin bowling alley and a health and fitness club. An elevated restaurant, which fans out from a tower rising high above the main roof like an 'elevated pier', will provide panoramic views of the bay.
