Pringle Richards Sharratt were appointed by the Roger De Haan Charitable Trust to work with the Creative Foundation to lead the regeneration and restoration of these three adjacent properties located in the heart of Folkestone Old Town conservation area, to create of a number of retail or commercial spaces on the ground floor along with a range of live work residential accommodation on the first and second floors.

All three of these listed buildings were identified as ‘at risk’ by Historic England (then English Heritage) and we worked closely with the local conservation and planning team to establish a series of sensitive but ingenious interventions to breathe new life into these three historic buildings.

Funding for the project was provided by the Roger De Haan Charitable Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Folkestone Historic Townscape Initiative.
