Notes NOTES: A holiday seaside house built right on the foreshore and designed to give maximum sea views from all rooms, executed in cream reinforced concrete with battleship grey windows. This was the first such 'modern' house to be built in the Bognor area and in contrast to many local authorities at the time the Rural District Council were quite happy to give their blessing to this speculative venture by Tecton. It was sold during the design stage and Lubetkin had a close hand in the finished product amending earlier proposals by Chitty.
