Partly preserved: the next stage of West Pier’s story

At terra firma we are pleased to have been involved at detailed design stage with the public realm scheme that flanks the BAi360 on Brighton’s seafront – the award winning and highly innovative observation tower or ‘vertical pier’ designed by Marks Barfield Architects.

The plaza to the east, designed by Fiona Atkinson Landscape Architects, includes the installation of 24 columns formerly part of the structure of the now derelict and much loved West Pier, as well as a foundation for the future siting of the West Pier Kiosk, a beautiful ironwork structure that the West Pier Trust are working towards restoring to its former glory.
