- Bespoke beachfront house gains consent
At TJDA we absolutely love designing bespoke waterfront properties, so we were delighted to gain consent for this private new-build residence on the beach in Littlestone, Kent, just a stone’s throw from our award winning ‘Seascape’ development which we designed for luxury developer Sunningdale House. This time working with a private client, we set out to unlock the full potential of this unique beachfront plot, whilst responding to a challenging brief which called for a cohesive interaction between the internal and external living spaces, and panoramic vistas across the channel. The exposed coastal position, east-west orientation, and overlooked nature of the beachfront site resulted in a biophilic design response, which creates a series of interlinked internal and external microclimates, enabling occupants to comfortably inhabit different parts of the home at different levels, at different times of the day, throughout the seasons, whilst maintaining a degree of privacy and a strong sense of place. The form and materiality is a direct response to the location. The sloping roof pitches have a recognisable vernacular feel, and enable the building to sit comfortably within its context. Wrapped in a black timber yakisugi cladding, they are set upon a strong stone plinth clad in knapped flint and sourced from the shingle on which the site sits. Vertical fins provide both articulation and solar control to the large glazed facades to minimise overheating, and the south facing roof pitch accommodates a large bank of integrated PV panels to help minimise the buildings energy requirements.
- Another commercial development into planning...

- Bespoke bungalow renovation underway
Works have commenced on site for the comprehensive renovation and extension of this detached 1950s bungalow in Herne Bay. The consented scheme removes unsympathetic later additions and re-instates the original period character of the property frontage. To the rear, a large full-width extension is book-ended by a contemporary feature wall finished in Geobrick and Yakisugi charred timer cladding. A Sunflex ‘hide-away’ sliding pocket door system and large roof lantern will seamlessly connect the open plan living space with the extensive mature landscaped gardens.
- Award-winning Art Deco Apartments
Our Art Deco inspired design for this apartment scheme in Palm Bay has recently been awarded the top accolade in the Margate Town Pride Awards. The scheme was voted the best of 12 shortlisted properties, and given a prestigious blue plaque. We worked closely alongside the client and planning department to ensure that we were able to unlock the full potential of this site, whilst enhancing and preserving the historic character of the area. The Isle of Thanet News reported that “The calibre of nominations received indicates a growing awareness amongst the Society’s members of the major contribution that both renovation of often run-down properties and the erection of well-designed new properties, make to the overall attractiveness of our town.” Palm Bay, was recognised for its innovative, sensitive and eye-catching design, making a major contribution to the regeneration of the Cliftonville area. The development will now proudly display a blue plaque to mark the award. These were the 39th Town Pride Awards, the Society’s Chair, Pamela Pople said: “I should like to thank everyone who has been involved, contributing to making this year’s event such a special occasion. This year is particularly poignant, as is the first Town Pride Awards’ event that we have held since 2019 and the ideal opportunity to celebrate the positive impact that projects have made in the local area.” “I am delighted once again that we received nominations of such a high calibre, resulting in one Town Pride winner this year (Palm Bay) and 4 ‘Highly Commended’, each of which was diverse, reflecting the exceptional high standard of new projects that have been undertaken in the areas of Cliftonville, Margate, Westbrook and Westgate-on-Sea, which will contribute greatly in raising ethos and a sense of pride in our community.” #planning #design #development #architecture #margate #awards #turnerjacksonday #storehouselondon #walltec

- New build progress in Minnis Bay
We are excited to see solid progress being made on this new-build replacement dwelling on a sought-after site in Minnis Bay, Kent. The contemporary design was developed in close collaboration with our client, and replaces a dilapidated bungalow on sunken corner plot overlooking a public green. The stepped L-shaped plan-form bookends the approach, transitioning both built form and site levels whilst offering a sense of enclosure and protection to the frontage. Expansive areas of glazing and luxurious open-plan living spaces maximise natural light and offer far-reaching views across the park and out to sea.
