Brunswick Place History

This print looks out to sea from Regency Brunswick Place in Hove. These houses have sought after sea-views provided by typically Brighton bow fronted houses. Brunswick Place was finished by 1828. Designed by Charles Augustin Busby. Occupants of Brunswick Place could be said to be a typical Hove mix of the 19th century with a few private schools, several wealthy widows, a number of clergymen, some eminent military personnel and a light sprinkling of titles.

Brunswick Place is divided by Western Road. Originally the architect design for lower Brunswick included a grand ballroom, 50 feet long and 40 feet wide with an arched ceiling 30 feet high while the outside façade resembled a classical temple. Three houses were built instead

Upper Brunswick Place stands to the north of Western Road, It was not until a second Act of Parliament in 1851 that enlarged the jurisdiction of the Brunswick Square Commissioners and building work began on the rest of the houses. By 1854 some 38 houses were built and occupied and by 1859 the number had risen to sixty-four.

The Regency Town House

The Regency Town House is a grade 1 listed terraced property c. 1820s, built as a part of architect Charles Busby’s ‘Brunswick Town’ estate.

Today, the House is being developed as a museum and heritage centre with a focus on the architecture and social history of Brighton & Hove between the 1780s and 1840s.

The main building at 13 Brunswick Square and its Basement Annexe a few doors away at number 10 are being restored by specialists and a team of volunteers.

The house is often open to the public and run fund-raising events, including supper clubs, performances, readings and recitals. Hosting often too art and photography exhibitions and events such as readings, book launches, and small functions.

Photograph of the base drawings for the art print. I draw these on A3 sheets of specialised marker paper with calligraphic brushes, fine-line ink pens, sponges, sand paper and other materials. The medium is ink ,watercolour and charcoal. I scanned these to form the main line work and patterns in the final print.
