Commissionedby the Folkestone Harbour & Seafront Development Company - the enterprise led by Sir Roger de Haan - Plot D-1 represents the third phase of thedevelopment that is seeking to regenerate this formerly derelict part of town.

PlotD-1 challenges the strict geometry of the masterplan’s crescents by openinggaps in the perimeter volume allowing sea views from every building andcreating a relationship to the listed terrace opposite Marine Parade. Thedesign is based around extensive terraces and balconies and a sheltered centralcommunal garden with direct access to the beach.

Themodular façade was conceived as a series of prefabricated load-bearing elementsthat reduce embodied carbon and withstand the harsh marine environment whilethe geometry optimizes self-shading of the exposed facades. The externalterracotta finish reflects the varying light conditions giving the buildings anever-changing appearance while the internal colour scheme is taken from thetones of the shingle beach.
