St Margaret's Road

We have designed two new townhouses on St Margaret’s Road in Hastings, Sussex. The houses sit on a steep sloping site and afford sea views at the upper levels. The houses have been designed to take advantage of these special characteristics and provide spacious accommodation in a split level arrangement over six storeys.

Context Specific Materiality

The palette of materials chosen was site specific, with the white render facade engaging with the context but also picking up on a modernist tradition of seaside houses. We have proposed galvanised metalwork, which is durable for the coastal location but also offers an attractive patina in contrast to the white render.
