Apartment block for Westcliff seafront
Milieu Architects has submited plans to Southend Council for the eight-storey block, containing 21 three-bedroom flats and a swimming pool.

The Institut du Monde Arabe is a centre for Arabic arts and culture. The building was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel to be a dialogue between cultures, and it reflects a modern interpretation of traditional Islamic art and architecture.
