Princes House was designed by the eminent architect H.S. Goodhart-Rendel (1887-1959). This steel framed building clad with elaborate brickwork and bright blue mosaics forming a pattern in the tile cladding of the steel frame is a fine example of his work. A grade one listed building and described as "a creative neo-Victorian idiom…with a dash of exoticism from the nearby Pavilion". (Architectural design 49 number 10-11 Britain in the 30's.)
The building has been sympathetically restored with the co-operation of Brighton & Hove City Council, Heritage and the 20th Century Society. Indeed, the contractors who built Princes House in the 1930's have been engaged to revisit the site to restore it to its former glory.
The property is a lasting testament to Goodhart-Rendel and is one
of the most prominent of al central town buildings being adjacent
to the Royal Pavilion Palace and with direct view over the palace
and garden itself (click here

The unique building offers the opportunity of exceptional location within a restored listed building boasting architect designed windows, offering bright accommodation and state of the art modern living. A unique building, a unique location and a unique opportunity to be part of this landmark building comprising 19 one-bedroom apartments, 11 two-bedroom apartments and two magnificent penthouses.
