This disused boiler house is largely subterranean, and consent had been granted to convert it into two large dwellings. Our brief was to increase the number to 4, in order to make the project financially viable, whilst still offering good accommodation that would make the finished dwellings attractive and different enough to sell in a difficult market, and in a position on the Leas, where, normally, sea views are expected. The project was shortlisted for a RIBA South.South East Conservation Award in 2011.
