Saltdean

    Newer Older

    Built in 1934 for a Mr. Snow, this house was one of three designed by Connell, Ward and Lucas. This is the only one remaining, after the neighbouring house was destroyed by fire in 1954.I have added the following to give some insight in to Saltdean and it's development;
    Regarding design of Saltdean houses Herbert Julyan wrote in a promotional leaflet for the Estate Company in 1959 that 'I suppose there is not another place like it in the United Kingdom. The Houses are all ultramodern in their design..Italian, Spanish and Cubist mixed with beautiful bungalows'. There was a wide range in design over three main styles. The first style was reproduction Tudor such as Chichester House, the second was varying bungalow designs and the third was a continental design - from the Spanish design of the Spanish lady to the Moorish design of the White House. There was also cubist designs by the internationally famous partnership of Connell, Ward and Lucas in 1934. These buildings in Wicklands Avenue were actually included on an Open University course - History of Art and Design 1890-1939'.
