Guy Holloway unveils £3m seafront homes

  • Comment

Guy Holloway has completed 11 new homes at the seafront in Margate


Dubbed as a ‘modern reinterpretation of the iconic English beach hut’ the £3 million 860m² scheme includes a mix of one and two-bedroom homes.

The two-storey larch-clad homes feature a mix of pebbled flat and larch pitched roofs, while large expanses of glazing and balconies provide views out across the English Channel.

Architect Guy Hollaway, said: ‘I grew up and live locally so the regeneration of Margate is very close to my heart. Here, we wanted to create the ultimate Beach Hut for 21st century living; architecturally our open-plan design allows for flexible spaces that are ideal for the modern family.’

Harriss managing director John Harriss, added: ‘We worked with Guy Hollaway and his team to create homes that embody a sense of fun in their practicality. Our intention from the start has been to create spaces where great memories will be made, and we hope to see these homes passed down from generation to generation. We have used materials that are durable and low maintenance so all you need to focus on is the view.’
