Project Title

De La Warr Pavilion

The De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea is one of the most recognisable 1930s buildings in Britain.  Designed by Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff it has been a cultural centre since it opened in 1935.

In 2005 it reopened after a major refurbishment supported by the Arts Council of England and Heritage Lottery Fund, adding two galleries to display art to the 1500 seat auditorium.

In preparation for the next phase of the building's life we are preparing - together with engineering conservation specialists Barton Engineers - a Conservation Management Plan for the Grade I listed building.  The Plan will support the design work, currently led by architects Purcell, for the refurbishment of the building.
