Stage 4

This project sets out a concept of discovery, turning a limited site into a new opportunity to adaptively reuse and improve the existing building on site. The use of natural materials such as hempcrete insulation and wood fibres, combined with a central rain garden strategy that encourages flooding, pushes the sites capabilities and enhances its environmental position for the future as well as adding to the life of Folkestone.


The design allows people to discover new skills in the creative industry and develop these into shows and events for the public, bridging the gap between being an artist in Folkestone’s creative quarter and simply viewing the artworks.
