Adjacent to some of the finest sixteenth and seventeenth domestic architecture in England, the site offers a space never built on before to house 30-40 units of housing, each with 2-3 habitable rooms. With the serious shortage of housing in England, most work carried out by architects takes in form of creating alterations and extensions to existing buildings. In order to prepare for such a task these housing units had to incorporate the given structural characteristics of what the historical town had to offer. This came with firstly analysing the existing boundaries of the site in order to better uniform the masterplan to the existing mapping of houses. The addition of paths, gateways and towers were encouraged to better enhance the scheme. The design not only offers three different types of housing for Sandwich residents, but also a path leading from the centre of town to the river close to the site, encouraging the residents to use the site rather than go past it.
