Details

Ellis designed Portmeirion on the town of Portofino in tribute to the atmosphere of the Mediterranean. The town that sits at the edge of its own Snowdonian peninsula incorporates fragments from several pre-existing buildings, assembling them in a post-modern bricolage. The ironic sense nostalgia and pastiche that emanates from Portmeirion has been a key element of its architectural legacy.
Portmeirion has been used repeatedly for the location of several TV and Film productions, as well as the inspiration for many more.
