Mid Century to Modern

A Grand Design in Sussex

A Grand Design in Sussex.

Imaginative conversion of an uninspired 1980's bungalow gaining space and light. Architect Adam Penton has breathed new life into this tired property by adding a master suite and filling in the angle across the corner between the two wings of the building. It has opened up access to the garden, added accommodation and created a spacious and beautiful home.

The Tramway Gas Station

One from the archives from an early visit to Palm Springs, the iconic Tramway Gas Station has become the emblem of Mid Century to Modern. Designed by Albert Frey, the godfather of minimalism, it was the first air conditioned public building in the USA and was always intended to have the flexibility to change with required usage. It now houses the Palm Springs Visitors centre.
