Newhaven Fort - Strategic development
Newhaven, UK  
Lewes District Council  
Newhaven Fort’s role is redefined to be a catalyst for the upgrading of the town. Following market testing and consultations with the local community and the fort’s key players, the study proposes future development options. Our approach focused on maintaining the historical and spatial qualities of the site through a proposal that will preserve this heritage while also revealing it to a wider public. A cultural program bringing together permanent and temporary exhibitions, as well as outdoor events, sees the buildings and landscape of the fort assigned with new functions. This exceptional place is thus revived with upgraded facilities whilst putting forward the historical aspects of the Fort.
