WHITSTABLE HOUSE

Location: Whitstable

Type: Residential

Status: Complete

A small domestic project designed for a horticulturalist in the seaside town of Whitstable re-imagines the rear of the semi-detached dwelling to create an open plan kitchen and living area with an intimate connection to the garden beyond. The façade is clad with charred timber, drawing reference from both Derek Jarman’s ‘Prospect Cottage’ on the shingle shore in Dungeness, and the vernacular of the local ‘fisherman’s hut’ present in Whitstable and other nearby coastal towns.
