This disused site in a prominent position on the edge of Rye town centre has now received planning permission for a mix of residential and commercial development. The scheme provides multiple 2 and 3 bed apartments above ground commercial space. The design approach aims to compliment the historic setting by providing a contemporary take on Rye`s vernacular using brick and timber cladding above the ground floor level. The commercial ground floor zone has been unified and emphasized by using the same darker brick finish with metal dark grey window and door frames. Natural gaps between the roof pitches allow important glimpses towards the buildings set on the Cliff behind.
