TQ3104SW CHURCH STREET 577-1/40/148 (East side) 13/10/52 The Corn Exchange: entrance wing (Formerly Listed as: The Corn Exchange and Dome)

GV II

Entrance and lobby added to the Corn Exchange, Church Street (qv). 1934. Designed by Robert Atkinson, FRIBA; sculpture by James Woodford. Grey brick in Flemish bond with stone dressings to the openings; the roof parapeted. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys over basement and a 4-window range. The design is a highly stylised version of the Islamic forms which Porden and Nash used in the early C19. Metal marquee projects in front of a 2-storey, pointed-arch recess; the tympanum filled with relief sculpture: the central figure placed on a vesica piscis depicts the goddess Ceres who assumes an Asian posture and aspect; to either side of her are 3 trumpeting angels who float on clouds. To either side of the recess, the front wall projects slightly to form turrets, the first-floor window of each is round arched; to the left an added wing with a horseshoe-arched, first-floor window; flanking the entrance itself are a 2- and 3-light window with twisted mullions. INTERIOR: lobby of 2 bays, ceiled by quadripartite groin vaulting, each cell is lit by a roundel. Of special note is the wood panelling in the waiting room just outside the conveniences. The entrance wing forms a group with the Dome and Corn Exchange (qv) as well as with the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, Church Street (qv).
