RIBA South East Regional Award Winning Building, 2016.

This unique site was formerly industrial and which also had the remains of Rye’s medieval town wall (a Scheduled Ancient Monument) running through it. The scheme is predominantly for residential use but also includes two retail units on the ground floor at street side. The residential sections include six flats, two penthouses, one studio unit and a detached house. For this project JDA took its influences from shipyard, harbour-front and beach hut architecture, creating steep, pitched roofs with dark Kebony cladding.

A sharply contemporary sensibility is provided in the detailing, which includes hidden window frames, expansive glass openings, and hidden guttering and piping. A dramatic impact is created at either end, where the roofs lie at a steep incline, reaching low to match the heights of the adjoining buildings.
