Minimalism

Almost every photograph I’ve seen of this white deco dream hotel has a whiff of unrealisticism about it. All the people look both happy and beautiful as they indulge their holiday whims. In Utopia. Their pets too. It really could be.

I like the minimalism of it all. There could be more chairs but there aren’t. I wonder if there could be more people. There are only 44 rooms. Is that enough? And is there a need for such a large reception area? Yes. I require space to appreciate this fine work.

Outside the hotel are deserted arcades and vast wastelands of beach/silt/cockles. And a few tatty cafes. It will be interesting to see how Blackpool compares. It promises to be the antithesis in every way. Loud, trashy, cheap, bright lights, busy, B+B, pleasure beach, Butlins, hens and stags.
