Embassy Court, the famous Thirties block of flats on the borders of Brighton and Hove, has celebrated the completion of its £5 million restoration.

There were concerts in the lobby and on the balconies and rooftop to celebrate the rejuvenation of the seafront block of flats.

Residents and guests also celebrated the reopening with a party on the seafront lawns in the evening sun.

The building, designed by architect Wells Coates, was the place to live in Brighton and Hove in the Thirties and Forties but deteriorated in the following decades.

Residents formed their own company, Bluestorm, to restore the building and have now successfully brought it back to its former glory.

Laura Cohn, Wells Coates' daughter, joined Bluestorm directors, Judith Walker, Lisa Gorman, Rowena Easton, and Emma Jinks, at Saturday evening's celebrations.
