Cambridge Terrace Apartments
A conversion and restoration of a Grade II listed terrace on Dover seafront into twenty five apartments. The project embraces the preservation of historic features whilst offering modern and spacious apartments with impressive views of Dover Castle, the Marina and the seafront.
The project aims to restore the empty and dilapidated building back to its former glory with significant improvements to the external façade.
Unoccupied, the building had fallen into disrepair with water ingress causing damage to the interior fabric. The first objective therefore was to make the building watertight with a sympathetic refurbishment of the roof, windows and external walls to enable the internal restoration and fit out works to commence.
Internally, the preservation of existing staircases, coving and other features was paramount. These features contribute a significant part of the style and feel of the apartments and a carefully managed restoration and re-use of existing features is seen as a cost effective approach to produce a high quality development.
