The project was to look at the feasibility of remodelling an existing accommodation block at the Sailing Club to provide improved accommodation and additional teaching rooms. We proposed 2 Design Options, which would transform an unsightly and out of date building into an attractive, elegant and practical low energy building suitable for its prominent position at the entrance of the sailing club.
The original brief was for an external walkway to provide access to the reconfigured rooms, allowing the central corridor to become ensuite bathrooms. However option 2 looked to retain the central corridor at first floor level, with no need for the external walkway and with only one less bedroom. This, we believe could save between a 1/4 to a 1/3 of the total budget cost.
