The changing colour of materiality reflects the rhythm of its surroundings, while the brick detailing on the adjacent Southern Block harks back to the Grade II listed former Country Court.

In this way, the scheme takes cues from its environs to blend seamlessly into the context, a patchwork of new and old.

Situated in the Star Hill Conservation Area and on an important junction in the centre of Rochester, the plans will transform a cluster of derelict buildings into much needed high quality homes. With significant heritage assets close to the site, the design demanded a sensitive and considered response. The design team achieved this with a deliberate choice of materials, brick hues, massing, and detailing.
