Found Type at the De La Warr Pavillion




I saw this lovely type at the weekend on a 1930's beach shop & cafe in Bexhill-on-Sea whilst visiting the magnificant De La Warr Pavillion on the seafront there.

For those that don't know about the De La Warr Pavilion, it's a recently refurbished Grade One listed Modernist building originally commissioned by the 9th Earl De La Warr in 1935 and designed by architects Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff.

It was the first public Modernist building in the UK and is simply stunning. All the original features including the iconic corkscrew staircase have been fully restored and the building now houses a cafe/restaurant, shop, auditorium and 2 galleries. You really can't beat a cream tea sat on the balcony overlooking the seafront!
