Architecture practice Wood Marsh and interior designer Kendra Pinkus have worked together with SC Land’s founding partners, husband and wife duo, Lance Chu and Chenghan Tan, who first purchased the illustrious Brighton site back in in 2000.
The architectural vision behind the collection of 24 three-level townhouses was a relaxed and casual expression of urbane architecture on the coast according to Wood March director, Randal Marsh. “Our intention was to reinterpret the traditional Victorian terraces that line many of Brighton’s streets and reappropriate this ideal for a contemporary lifestyle,” says Randal. “The building’s strong skin is naturalised by the timber fringing; we consider this to be a modern take on the typical wrought iron latticework you would see in period homes.”
Architecturally significant, yet a private oasis, 30 Esplanade offers a life of beauty and pleasure in a landscape of uncommon charm. These grandly proportioned homes, designed by Wood Marsh, are lavish in the sense of space, privacy and sophistication they bestow. Each dwelling, enhanced by roof terrace and courtyard, shares a visual connection to the water.
30 Esplanade represents the coming together of master craftsmen, artisans and technicians to produce homes that are exceptional in both their beauty and behaviour.
The poetic and prosaic are handled with equal precision and imagination. No item, no angle, no fixture is introduced to the interiors or exteriors of these residences without being practically and creatively considered. The results can be seen in living spaces characterised by comfort, refinement, quality and pleasure. Seen and unseen, every fixture and fabrication, appliance and technology exists to enhance everyday life, many of them exclusive to your home.
