Argus Lofts
City Loft Developments
Architecture
 
The former printworks of Brighton’s local paper, The Evening Argus, has been converted into apartments, shops, offices, restaurants and theatre space, a vibrant blend of uses that reflects the building’s location in Brighton’s cosmopolitan North Laines. A quarter of the new apartments are social housing.

We carefully restored the original buildings and added crisp white blocks at either end.
 
Stone panels on the new elevations give the building a civic quality rarely seen in speculative housing schemes, while optimistic coloured panels added to existing facades reflects the liveliness of the area. Entrances are marked by zinc panels and lobbies contain works by photographer Dave Grogan.
