[STEPHEN LAWRENCE PRIZE] A fine example of good architecture engendering business success
More from: Stephen Lawrence Prize 2012
Previously refurbished by the same architects, due to the success of the Grade II-listed hotel and restaurant, The Marquis at Alkham near Dover in Kent, has now been extended to provide additional hotel rooms, improved staff facilities and an enlarged kitchen.
The new building ties into its surroundings with the use of locally sourced flint and Kent Peg Tiles reclaimed from the demolished cottage that used to be on the site. A sedum roof also meshes it into the landscape. A fine example of good architecture engendering business success.
