‘The Light House Complex’, comprising of; residential apartments, supermarket, shops and a pub, celebrates the birthplace of British Film and its most remarkable local inventor. Known simply as ‘Daddy Paul’ in the film industry, Robert Paul (1869-1943) who lived, worked and filmed in the nearby streets, invented and pioneered films and projections of local characters and stories. LPA have created a light defusing void that cuts through the substantial massing of this building. Like ‘Daddy Paul’s’ ‘urban lense’, the building and its ‘light beam’ reflects and projects into local life. This major complex provides a shimmering tribute and a distinctive focal point on the local street scape.
