This schemes objective was enhance the presence of the Canterbury Archaeological Trust within the urban tissue of the city by producing a new ‘front window’ to the public, an Archaeological Exhibition Centre on a corner site by North Gate Road. The project’s aims were to adapt and extend an existing Edwardian building in a mock Tudor style to our own scheme. The key theme to my design strategy is the movement of people through the building as part of a much larger route from the River Stour in the West through the site to the dense housing estate in the East. Therefore the open free plan of the Modernist period was the most suitable choice of layout. The free plan best serves for the flow of movement because of its minimal obstructions and continues by offering spatial flexibility to the continually changing exhibition display in the public galleries, while providing adaptability to the private living accommodation.
