GRANTED PLANNING – 2014

Location:

WESTGATE, KENT

 

Cooks were asked to design a new build home for a vacant plot at Westgate which overlooks the north Kent coast.

 

The form of the building follows the irregularity of the plan and incorporates extensive areas of glazing to maximise sea views. The entrance is delineated by strong vertical fins. The front door opens into a glazed lobby and then into a widening ‘street’ that opens up to the glazed back of the house letting in the sun and creating a transparent fault line running through the house at both ground and first floor levels.
