    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, 1 x office unit and 10 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/office 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 scheme is currently in planning.

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.
