Haddo Yard

Haddo Yard occupies an important position in the town. The new building stands immediately opposite the train station and makes the most of what is an unusual opportunity to establish a distinct visual presence on this prominent site.

We worked closely with Denizen Works to devise an architecture inflected with Whitstable’s built heritage but which honestly acknowledges the site’s largely 20th Century context.

The building combines references to local vernacular architecture with a heightened refinement and civic generosity appropriate for a building which addresses the main station and which will help shape the first impression of Whitstable for many visitors.
