Panter Hudspith and FAT picked for 1,000-home Folkestone masterplan

Panter Hudspith, FAT and Birds Portchmouth Russum have been chosen to work on an enormous Terry Farrell and Partners-masterplanned residential scheme in Folkestone

Early plans for the seafront housing in Kent which include a range of typologies were revealed last month.

Panter Hudspith has designed the apartments, FAT has created a beach hut scheme, Birds Portchmouth Russum has planned the townhouses and Terry Farrell and Partners’ is working on proposed ‘dune houses’.

A planning application for the Roger de Haan-backed scheme is expected to be lodged in April.

The Kent coast site features a disused railway viaduct which will be transformed under the plans into a linear park – similar to Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s High Lineproject in New York.

A Foster and Partners-designed scheme for the land was shelved two years ago.

  • In amongst all these jolly, light-hearted and interesting houses, the flat block looks a bit dull really. Lets have more of this please.
