Make to replace Brighton conference centre with 'glass palace'

  • Comment
Make Architects is to design a £250 million 'glass palace' in Brighton.

The 25,000m2 mixed-use project is being backed by Standard Life, which owns the land, and will provide a new department store, a luxury 300-room hotel, and a conference centre.

The scheme will replace the Brighton Centre (pictured), which was built in the 1970s and has played host to many political party conferences.

The new proposals will also aim to redevelop the area around the city's Churchill Square, creating what Brighton and Hove Council hopes will be a landmark for the city.

Make's appointment is another example of the practice's meteoric rise since it was set up in 2004.

The firm is currently working on dozens of projects across the UK and Europe, such as the Sherwood Forest scheme, which is aiming for Lottery funding.
