The project is a retrofit of an existing carpark structure in Ramsgate designated for semi-independent living accommodation for young care leavers aged 16-18. The project aims to connect the client with the wider community through the building programme providing spaces for wellbeing, education, work and socialising. Renewable energy is produced on site using algae photobioreactors which also serve as an architectural feature. The project explores how the environmental solutions can be incorporated with the aesthetics of the building.
