Friese Greene House
Affinity Sutton Group
Architecture
 
Completed in 2015, this design is a contemporary re-interpretation of the Edwardian shops along Portland Road, Hove. The main material is red brick, with pitched roofs and dormer windows above a rendered base, all reinforcing the character of the area. The corner building on Portland Road and School Road is more of a bold contemporary addition to the continually improving environment of Portland Road.
 
The development provides 35 new homes built to Lifetime Homes Standards, Secured by Design principles and achieve Code for Sustainable Homes level 3-4, as well as provision of dedicated wheelchair units. All homes have private external amenity spaces as well as shared communal spaces.
A piece of Artwork was commissioned for the building as the feature window piece, which commemorates the previous historic Art Deco cinema, it was created by a local artist and has inspired the buildings new identity.
