🟩 GreenBricks Building of the Week 🟩 Circus Street

A 1792 city map was used as a blueprint for this development, inspired by Brighton Lanes’ historic origin, creating an intimate, human-scaled place. Circus Street provides bones for a new and playful neighbourhood.

🎈Bonus feature

Brighton has been identified as top location for businesses to open an alternative office outside London. However, 32% of senior decision makers in Brighton-based businesses say there is a lack of quality offices in the city – a shortage driving up rents. Circus Street fills a gaping market gap.
