ONE TWO ONE and ‘SARA’ the Southwater Area residents Association have been successful in getting the first funding award from “awards for all’ for stage 2 of the ‘up the road and round the corner’ arts project for the Southwater Area.

The £10,000 award will help kick start stage 2 with the development of a wayfinding map and a biographical journey of this area of St Leonards-on-Sea. This will take the shape of an Architectural Ceramic tile wall  at the ‘gateway’ to the Southwater area.

To be  designed in partnership with ONE TWO ONE, SARA and Brighton University and also hopefully the Southwater Area Community Centre.

Design Workshop day December 1st 2008

The design workshop day was the first in a series of ‘placemaking and wayfinding’ workshops that will instigate the design development of the arts strategy and design implementations undertaken by ONE TWO ONE for the Hastings plaza Primary Care Centre.

The Dec 1st workshop was intended as a drop-in day but many of the participants attended for most of the day.

The morning started with the participants having a round table discussion and a personal descriptive list outlining their understanding of the sense of place or ‘placemaking’ of the new Primary Care Centre.


Colour swatches/textures and collages were then explored alongside the list generated 

A round table conversation concerned with the mornings findings also took place. (please scroll down to December 10th post, click on the sound bar and listen to the placemaking audio clips.)

The use of quick card models at a scale of 1:20 of the main foyer entrance and a surgery reception area layout  were used to aid the ‘placemaking’ conversation and give the participants a chance to comprehend the internal layout of the space and also the nature of the building on the site in relation to the street at both train/ bus station/ sussex coast college level and also at the Devonshire Rd/ Priory Meadows level

( please scroll down and click on the ‘primary care centre’, a slide show that gives a cold winters day outline of the building ‘site’ and its viewpoints)
