Masterplan Queenborough and Rushenden. Isle of Sheppey. Kent.

Client: SEEDA
Contract value: N/A
Competition: 2003

As sub-consultants to Kent based Robert Rummey Associates we developed strategic proposals for t he regeneration of Queenborough historic town centre and the adjoining new town of Rushenden. Rushenden in particular became the focus of how to adapt a ‘could-be-anywhere’ environment, bereft of any communal facilities into a mixed urban environment with a specific sense of place.

The development of 3-4 storey terraced housing blocks created was used to optimize shared communal public space between built strips which also provided views and physical links from the main road to the sea edge.
