The goal of the Urban Intervention project was to keep Ramsgate active. This was accomplished by connecting the three sites with a track that allows for running, cycling, and walking. Providing trees and vegetation around the sites encouraged biodiversity, which was critical for long-term sustainability.
The goal of the Architectural Design project was to transform the carpark into a social and open space dedicated to the arts and corn exchange. To better integrate into the environment of Ramsgate, the design considers breaking the carpark’s areal density. Because the building is intended to serve everyone, a ramp that facilitates impaired access was a major design consideration. To encourage circulation around the structure, the ramp wraps around the building. Finally, by optimising biodiversity, energy generation and employing sustainably sourced materials, the building was made sustainable.
