Art Deco in Frinton on sea
During the 1920’s architect Oliver Hill planned to develop a luxury Art Deco Estate
involving a prospective 100 room cliff top hotel, cinema, colleges, churches and houses
all depicting the elegant Art Deco Designs of the Twenties.
Sadly lack of funding or demand for these way out designs called a halt to the development, and along with the outbreak of war in 1939 ended Oliver Hills vision, resulting in the company being dissolved.
The completely round ‘Estate Office’ remains today with a impressive mosaic floor showing the plans of the intended estate.The dozen or so Art Deco houses continue to be lived in to this day, and are well worth a visit to Frinton, along with a browse around ‘Number 24’ to reminisce on an elegant bygone era.
