eastern esplanade, southend-on-sea
With unobstructed, panoramic southerly views over the Thames Estuary and forming part of an identified seafront character zone, the proposals optimise this unique location as a spectacular place to live.
A layered façade creates extensive balcony areas which also facilitate passive solar control. Set back behind the balcony framework largely glazed elevations draw the unique view into each of the 16 apartments whilst forming an appropriately robust external skin to weather this often harsh ever-changing marine environment.
Echoes of passing yachts, the Pier and the beach are captured in a contemporary reworking of a traditional Southend seafront pavilion.
