    Concept Design

The scheme includes the refurbishment of a derelict and unused Grade II listed building, the Two Brewers pub, that dates back to the 17th century and is a notable building in the area for its construction methods. The scheme delivers 1 x commercial unit and 11 residential units with a mix of 1- and 2-bedroom homes.

Our analytical and contextual approach to the design has evolved
through a thorough understanding of the site and the Dartford Core Strategy and Framework. The scheme will provide much needed housing, which will complement the site and wider area that is experiencing significant regeneration. The commercial elements will contribute to local employment and the growing economy
of the area. The materials used relate to the existing pub while pulling
references from significant buildings in the Dartford town centre.

The planning application has been granted.

Dartford has been experiencing a considerable amount of growth in recent years, and is now one of the top five places in the country for residential growth rates.
