Description

Embassy Court, Icon of 20th Century Modernism
King's Road, Corner of Western Street, Brighton & Hove, East Sussex, BN1 2PX
Embassy Court was designed by the Canadian architect Wells Coates and completed in 1936. The following year, the Museum of Modern Art in New York featured the building in its seminal exhibition 'Modern Architecture in England', A 90 minute tour of this iconic 1930s Modernist apartment block on Brighton seafront. It was the first purpose built apartment block in the UK to have top floor flats designated as 'penthouse' designed by renowned Canadian architect Wells Coates. The tour takes in the stunning views from the 11th floor sun terrace, the interior of a flat and the area behind the scenes from which the building is run by residents and leaseholders.
There is also the opportunity to view a Mural, access to the Tank Rooms and the reinstated Wells Coates kitchen which has recently been returned to Embassy Court from the Pavilion Museum, in Brighton.
