Preston Road – Architecture

Preston Road – Architecture


Situated in the heart of Brighton and Hove, just two miles from Brighton Beach, is Preston Road; our collection of one, two and three-bedroom homes available to purchase through Shared Ownership. 


This unique development is a mixture of new builds and a refurbishment of two beautiful Victorian Villas. With careful consideration, the villas are now home to 14 apartments and 6 new 3-bedroom family houses. 


The site was first developed in 1870 into two residential houses. In the early 1900, one of the Villas was the childhood home of Herman Schrijver, an interior designer who was famous for mixing modern and traditional styles. Our redevelopment of the site pays tribute to this, and carefully combines the original period features of the buildings with 21st century modern architecture. 


Designed by leading architects Yelo, Preston Road offers the highest quality of design and build for first time buyers. The restoration retains the original large sash windows, majestic staircase and ornate balustrades, while local building materials were selected in order to replace brick banding and metal work. 


The two existing Victorian villas have been completely refurbished to their former glory, and a new apartment block has been built to compliment the history and local area. The new building has been designed to be simple in form and materiality so as not to detract from the prominence of the villas. 


Yelo Architects found it important to recognise the defining characteristics of the Victorian architecture and these have been interpreted in a subtle yet high quality manner, through the choice of materials, symmetrical façade, window proportions and recessed balconies.
