Marina Pavilion, St Leonards on Sea, by Neil Choudhury Architects
Neil Choudhury has released these photographs of his new beachside pavilion in Hastings, East Sussex
The scheme, which was originally conceived back in 2004, is the first new structure to be built on the St Leonards on Sea seafront in 70 years.
Delayed due to land ownership issues, the completed project also included the refurbishment and extension of a 1930’s leisure building which sits below the new pavilion..
Describing the scheme Choudhury says: ‘As a contrast to its curvilinear seaside modernist-style host building the extension to the pavilion is a sharply modernised “Diner” its pre-oxidised aluminium cladding topped with a neon lit sign marking the entrance.’
The project, which opened last year, was backed by SeaSpace - the regeneration company set up by the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA), Hastings Borough Council and East Sussex County Council.
