Faversham Creek Housing

THE BRIEF WAS TO DESIGN HOUSING ON THE BANKS OF THE CREEK, WITHIN A FLOOD ZONE, WHILE CONSIDERING THE WIDER URBAN IMPLICATIONS.

 
 

This project aimed to regenerate Faversham Creek. After considering the wider urban area, we were tasked with designing a mixed-use development for one of the sites along the creek. Housing was the main focus, but as the site was in a high flood risk area, the bottom floor of the buildings could not be residential.


Orthographics

These plans, sections and elevations are updated versions of the ones I drew for the final presentation of my Faversham Creek project.  

For the presentation, I traced the drawings with pencil. However, this smudged and made them difficult to read, even after editing and colouring in Photoshop. Since the presentation, I re-traced the images in pen before editing and colouring them, and I am much happier with the new versions.
