DEVELOPMENT ON A HISTORIC ESTATE IN KENT

A project in Kent providing fifty-four new dwellings and a private health club on the site of an outdated conference and leisure centre. Proposals by other architects had raised concerns due to their overtly Modernist approach. The highly glazed southern facade has an open portico of terraces, screened by a colonnade of narrow order columns. This provides shade from the summer sun whilst maximising views and solar gain. Detail is understated in order to respect the Grade I Listed mansion by Nash on this site and to reflect the industrial nature of nineteenth century conservatory architecture. A four-storey tower house has been designed as a folly within the picturesque landscape in accordance with the original Repton landscape.
