HAWLEY SQUARE


Refurbishment of a 5-storey Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse in Margate’s Conservation Area. 

The concept was to respectfully conserve and restore the core period aspects of the 200-year old property while inserting mid-Century inspired modern elements of design and joinery to the replanned house. A clear articulation between new and old has been established, rebalancing the hierarchies of the house for modern living.  The result is a direct response to the existing architecture of the house and to our informal, unselfconscious way of life.

Consent was obtained for demolition of a modern addition at the rear, to improve the quality of the rear garden, the last ‘room’ of the house. 

Being architect and client on a refurbishment project with my husband, Peter Thomas of Studio Gray, has offered new insight into the build process from a home owner’s perspective.

Interior photography is thanks to the wonderfully talented Jo Bridges and I am delighted to have the project  featured in Jo's fabulous blog the Curio.  

I am also thrilled to have had the project, and our move to the coast, featured in the Guardian, 25 Beautiful Homes and Good Homes magazine.
