A Seaside Retreat

Helen Leask

Work on the refurbishment of a Grade II Listed Building within Margate's Conservation Area has commenced.

Having been previously extended in the 1980's, the renovation and adaptation of the building envelope will respect its Georgian origins.  The refurbishment has been styled with a contemporary, relaxed and comfortable interior to provide a sociable 4-bedroomed holiday retreat for the client.

Completion is due by the end of the Summer 2016.

Planning Permission has been secured for the refurbishment and restoration of a mixed-use building within the Margate Conservation Area, two weeks ahead of the due determination date.  

Built in the early 1880's, with the Turner Contemporary gallery now standing opposite, the existing building contributes significantly to the character of the conservation area and Margate’s seafront architecture.  Having been used as a storage facility- remarkably- by its previous owner, the shopfront, fenestration and roof finish will now be reinstated to their original design and the internal layout for the commercial unit and residential floors above have been reimagined with a contemporary objective.

Works are due to commence imminently and the commercial unit will soon be the home of an exciting new addition to Margate's Old Town.
