We have also supported the proposal by the Tinside Action Group (the body instrumental in the listing of Plymouth Tinside Lido) to spot-list the above building and to protect it from a current redevelopment application, which would entail the building’s demolition.
This building by Mr E G Catchpole, built in 1938, is the only surviving example of Art Deco architecture in Plymouth City centre. A former car showroom, it is a good typical example of the period, with its flat roof and original curved windows. The main elevation is elegantly articulated in a streamlined moderne fashion. We feel that Colin Campbell House should be listed as a unique example of interwar architecture in Plymouth City centre.
