Brighton Hippodrome Aerial.
Zooming in on the wonderful Brighton Hippodrome on Middle Street. Is that a hexadecagon I see before me? The 125 year old theatre had seen better days, but thanks to significant investment and a new scheme, the restoration is well under way. Matsim Properties at the helm, with Lomax Architecture navigating design. One of the primary tasks was a new roof which some aerial survey shots by drone help show. Plans include new apart hotel, co-working space and a full revamp of the theatre to create flexible, performance, music and conference space. A sustainable and future proof concept to bring back to life this Frank Matcham classic… a south Devonshire compadre no less. Peach of a building in the heart of the city, and a stones throw from the beach. Fat Boy Slim rumoured to be launching the opening night.
