The design is simple, clean and crisp with a clear architectural idea that is both contextual and forward-thinking. A material palette of three types of brick and a perforated metal complement the surroundings without being a pastiche of Brighton's existing urban fabric. Careful detailing includes metal vertical balustrading and corbelled brick details to the base storey that reference local historical buildings.
The positioning of the buildings has been driven by placemaking principles with clear arrival spaces and legible entrances. The layout of the buildings allow long views through the landscaped gardens for neighbouring residents while the landscape itself is an archipelago of planted islands which creates a pedestrian focused environment, guiding movement and forming safe, usable spaces.
