Landivar Architects acted as lead Architects and Interior designers to deliver the Vine Street mixed use infill development in the heart of the popular North Laine district, Brighton. Located on a north – South street, surrounded by pubs, shops and restaurants, the mixed use development is designed to complement and enhance the vibrant and popular tourist destination.
The design takes its cue from the post-industrial aesthetic of the North Laine conservation area, which included small scale cottage industries. The industrial aesthetic includes the use of zinc roofing, PPC Steel windows, facing brick and render. The ground floor is allocated to 4 individual mixed use ‘Bays’ that are allocated to a restaurant, Pop up brewery, tattoo parlour and vintage furniture shop. The eclectic mix of uses complements the vibrant atmosphere of the area and facilitates the upper residential accommodation, formed of two – short stay holiday lets. The accommodation at Vine Street Studios is designed with three things in mind: the creation of a space that is as versatile as it is comfortable; the use of finishes, furnishings and fittings that surprise, inspire and delight; the notion that a weekend accommodation can – and should – look and feel just like a beautifully designed home. It includes an open plan living space, 4 sleeping double bedrooms, a self-contained annex and secure off street parking. The interior design is one of playfulness and honesty to materials, whilst also being robust designed for the relatively hard use.
