One of the best examples of Modernist architecture in Britain, the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, reopens on October the 15th following an £8 million refurbishment. Originally designed by Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermaieff in 1935 the current refurbishment and extension is by John McAslan + Partners and is the culmination of the practice’s involvement that goes back some fifteen years. Much of the 1930s interior detail was lost from the building in the 1960s and 1970s. The circulation through the building is being improved, bringing the flat sun-deck roof back into use. The new refurbished building will host one of the largest contemporary art galleries in the Southeast, an auditorium seating up to 1,000 people, roof and ground-floor terraces, plus a bar and restaurant with outdoor sun terraces.
