PLATEAU; The redevelopment of Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour car-park seeks to expand upon the limited public space along the seafront and integrate community growing within Ramsgate culture. The previous monolithic structure is broken down into plazas, courtyards as well as garden patches, and the development forms a strong focus on permeability, transparency and a harmonious integration into the town’s urban fabric. Newly introduced pedestrian streets lead to a Trade hall, aiming to supply local ethnic minority groups with the ingredients needed for cultural meals, thus allowing them to cook healthy meals for family and children.
