Brighton Van Alen Building Card
The Brighton Van Alen Building card is part of our brand new Sun Collection. These cards are the perfect gift for the architecture lover in your life, or a memento of a trip to this iconic building, or simply for you to keep.
This card depicts a front elevation of the newly refurbished Grade II building on Hove seafront. The Van Alen Building is a modern apartment and penthouse block on the seafront in Brighton, part of the English city of Brighton and Hove. It was named after William Van Alen, the architect of New York City’s Chrysler Building and is designed as a 21st-century interpretation of the Art Deco and Streamline Modern styles. It was completed in 2001.
Curved lines and surfaces are used throughout; the building thereby represents a 21st-century interpretation of the Art Deco and Streamline Moderne styles which were popular themes in seaside resort architecture in the 1930s. In Brighton, this tradition was represented by the Embassy Court development of 1934–36 by Modernist architect Wells Coates—one of the city’s most innovative and iconic modern buildings—and the Van Alen Building has been compared to it. The overall design has been praised as innovative by Brighton & Hove City Council and within the building industry. Local conservationists have also given their approval.

Our card supplier has always taken environmental concerns seriously, as they print solely on HP Indigo Digital Presses our Pre Press Department is able to be entirely digital as there are no printing plates required for the printing process. All empty ink cans from the presses are re-cycled as is the small amount of waste imaging oil resulting from the printing process. In addition all replacement parts are also returned to the printer’s manufacturer for recycling. All waste paper and board is collected for recycling.
* The colours you see on your screen may not look exactly the same as the actual card. This is because every computer, Smart phone and iPad screen is configured differently. Hopefully you will think the card looks even more beautiful in real life
