187. Embassy Court from the Sunken Garden, Brighton


Dear Paulo

In 1936 Embassy Court was
completed, being the first penthouse
block of flats built in the UK.
Referring to this building, the
architect, Wells Coates said:
"Old ideas have been discarded and
a new building has arisen to greet a
new age that think of happiness in
terms of health"

Regards.
