Riverside Wharf, Littlehampton

A group of Victorian warehouses represent the last remnant of industrial building along the east bank of the River Arun in Littlehampton and lies within the western extremity of the Conservation Area – the last block in a continuous run of residential developments extending up the eastern bank of the River Arun from the harbour.

As developers of the new Thomas Heatherwick designed beachfront cafe, Jane Wood and Brownfield Estates are investing in Littlehampton with new, high- quality architecture that will help to rejuvenate the Town for the 21st century.

The design for five new townhouses retains the shell of the Victorian buildings, integrating old and new. The new building adopts a simple form clad in cedar to contrast with the textured and varied forms of the existing brick + flint facades. A metal clad sawtooth roof has resonances with wharfside buildings and identifies each house.
