Local artists wanted for £120 million redevelopment project
Local artists are being asked to consider designs for a large public art installation, as part of the £120 million Edward Street Quarter development.
The project is being developed by First Base, who have received planning consent to redevelop the two-acre site, which was formally the AMEX-house. They are joining with Patron Capital and are proposing a vibrant new mixed-use scheme that will deliver “60,000 sq.ft of Grade A offices alongside space for independent coffee shops and restaurants bringing over 2000 jobs into the city and reviving this part of Brighton.”
The mixed-use developer are soon going live with an opportunity for local artists to submit ideas for a façade wall through Brighton and Hove City Council. If you wish to be involved with this prominent piece of public art, add your name to the council’s tender list to be considered by emailing
“We’ve been talking to stakeholders and members of the local community to understand the area’s culture and heritage so that these stories and themes can be weaved into the public artwork”
Richard Wolfstrome, the local designer appointed to oversee the development’s public art strategy.
The scheme is being designed by BuckleyGreyYeoman and aims to be inspired by Brighton’s eclectic street scene. Landscape designers Spacehub will be introducing 130 new trees and 45 plant species into the site
