Green Buildings

Some inspiring examples of greening the built-up environment of The Living Coast exist, from Victorian green walls to modern buildings with green wildflower roofs. You can visit the following:

Linklater Pavilion, Lewes Railway Land - innovative environment centre with green roof

Earthship, Stanmer - the first in England, with rainwater harvesting and natural wastewater treatment

One Brighton, New England quarter - with sky garden allotments & green walls

Madeira Drive, Brighton seafront – one of the oldest and certainly the longest green wall in Europe!

Regency Square, Brighton seafront – large green roof park over underground car park

The Level café, Brighton – a recent green roof (pictured above)

Crew Club, Whitehawk – landscaped green roofs

New England quarter, by Brighton station – green walls planted

Phoenix ‘container housing’, by Preston Circus – wonderful wildflower roofs
