Richmond Bell Architects were commissioned to produce a concept design and planning feasibility study for this large riverside development in Sussex. The multi-purpose site consisted of flats, restaurants, shops, a gym, boathouses and a yacht club, as well as a boardwalk and landscaped promenade. It was intended to regenerate an underdeveloped area of the town, as well as attracting visitors to the town centre. The finished design blended sympathetically with the natural environment and offers local residents a place to live, relax and socialise. The design included:

  • A public courtyard, with bustling cafes, restaurants, shops, a bar, and gym which opened out onto the waterfront, overlooking the river to the West.
  • A riverside landscape with terraced decking and flying walkway, where people can stop to admire the views and picnic on the banks of the river.
  • Affordable housing and flats for first time buyers.
  • Improved facilities for the local community with a new boutique hotel, restaurants and areas of play.
  • A safe and clean environment with improved security and lit streets.
  • Better access for all to the river banks and the river.
  • A link to enable local residents to walk to the quayside development from their homes.
  • A new ferry port to allow residents and visitors to arrive at the quay via a local ferry service.
