BRIGHTON

TQ3203NW MARINE PARADE 577-1/48/468 (North side) Nos.134, 135 AND 136 and attached walls, piers and railings

GV II

Terraced houses, now flats. Early to mid C19. Stucco. Roof of slate. Because these units were designed as a single block, the following description will treat them as such. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and a 2-storey attic over basement. 9-window range with 4-window range to the return of No.134 where one can find a largely C20 entrance of no distinction. The centre 3-window ranges of the main elevation are set back slightly so as to form a 3 bay composition which is bilaterally symmetrical. The ground floor is rendered as banded rustication. All the windows are flat arched with projecting sills. The entrance is on the return. During conversion into flats, probably sometime in the late C19, a porch was added to the ground floor. This is supported by 6 cast-iron columns on high socles, the 2 outer columns at either end being coupled to form narrow end bays. Floor-to-ceiling first-floor windows open onto the roof of this porch which is enclosed by cast-iron railings to form a balcony. Applied to the first and second floors of each outer bay, or side wing, of the main block are 3 giant pilaster strips. These are interrupted by a storey band between the first and second floors. Topping the pilasters is a broad entablature band. Similar pilaster strips rise again from the sill band of the first attic storey of the wings and terminate in an entablature with a projecting cornice. A second set of pilasters applied to the second attic storey, above which is a parapet topped by a balustrade. All entablatures and the storey band are continuous across the recessed central section and across return. INTERIOR: not inspected. Walls, piers and railings to entrance and areas. The design of the block very likely once resembled Nos 131, 132 and 133 Marine Parade (qv) and the terraces designed by CA Busby on Portland Place (qv). Included for group value.
