Made in Sheerness / Renovation for a ruin

Made in Sheerness
Made in Sheerness

The dockyard church in Sheerness, Kent, UK had been severely burnt in 2001 and the fire made it extremely vulnerable that it cannot stand itself without the scaffolding structure. The relationship of the existing building and the scaffolding structure can be interpreted as a harmonious interdependence between the old and the new. Based on this sympathetic view, the new programme was developed as a makerspace where various professions synergise to promote local economy with boat yards that build and repair traditional ships as commemoration of what the historic dockyard had existed for, which has been the local identity for the last 300 years.
