WIP: 5 new dwellings and a new bespoke workshop facility on the site of a redundant chicken farm, set within both a Conservation Area and AONB. This sensitive redevelopment of a redundant series of agricultural buildings was built out of an in-depth understanding of the traditional Kent farmstead vernacular and how this could be reinterpreted. The combination of our own research and the cross collaboration between design team, local community and the Kent AONB unit, culminated in the creation of a three and a half sided courtyard with edges formed by varying agrarian forms, which are playfully interwoven. This creates a cohesiveness that offers both functional and aesthetic benefits, simultaneously harking back to the iterative nature of a historic farmstead. . The farmhouse stands alone as a focal point of the development, with a frontage positioned sensitively so that it sits between dominance and subservience. Each building references a different historic agricultural building type, whilst contemporary interpretations of historic design elements allow for a distinctive but respectful design. . .

WIP: One of a series of sketch concepts for the renovation of a Grade II Listed building set within the heart of Ramsgate’s new High Street Heritage Action Zone. A series of instrumental yet sensitive interventions look to introduce a unique urban botanical extravaganza. Internal ‘as found’ finishes are retained where possible and sealed, whilst additional decoration in the form of selective accent colors look to accentuate set profiles around key existing features. Central to this concept is the removal of a large section of the ground floor footprint to create a double height space for planting to grow throughout the building. An active florist draws visitors off the street, whilst within the basement a new marine conservation labyrinth, examining ocean plastic contamination and coral bleaching is introduced. Part of this story is recording the natural world, which is why the first and second floors are proposed to be occupied by analogue and digital documentary-making suites. A cafe / gin bar within the western end encourages evening use of the botanical/conservation spectacle. This project aims to attract new investment into Ramsgate’s High Street, which combined with ‘Pioneering Places’ through the national Great Place Scheme, is part of a more ambitious project. One that will make East Kent an even better place to live, work and visit by exploring heritage, developing civic pride and connecting artists and communities. . .
