Babylon Lounge - Hove, UK

Charles Meloy with LCE Architects

The redevelopment of Babylon Lounge in Hove proposed to re-order and extend the existing premises to create a flexible entertainment venue. At promenade level the cafe and bar area opens to the beach with a new roof top pavilion proposed affording views directly out to sea and along Hove lawns. The glazed enclosure is protected from solar gain in the summer with a cantilevered roof structure. Solar gain to the East and West facades would be mitigated with automatic external blinds.

It is notable that the proposals were successful at planning at a time when it was unknown for any development in front of the building line and on the sea front to receive consent.
