The project is located in Dungeness, on the South coast.
The geological formation of Dungeness has been a process of continual environmental forces shaping the land. This movement is clearly visible in the terrain through undulating shingle ridges. The wildlife sits on a constantly shifting ground, hugging it low to avoid the salt winds.
The local architecture derives its charm from a patchwork of distinct styles – it is a place where individualists have sought to escape the outside world, building quirky and often charming homes. Dungeness’ charm lies in its inhabitants unique character, and their self-expression of this through their dwelling, each one is manifestation of their personality.
LPA’s proposal seeks to add to this patchwork by creating a home that follows the tidal movement and reflects the ridged terrain.
