Porthcawl Harbourside

Porthcawl

Competition sketch scheme entry for mixed retail development in Porthcawl.

Based around an anchor food store, the scheme provided also non food retail units and restaurants which would link directly to the existing town centre shopping district, leading pedestrians to an attractive external central plaza / amphitheatre.

The sketch designs were derived from the local vernacular style, and adapted to provide a modern twist to this seaside setting. A gradual transition of style leads from the traditional existing shopping district to the modern food store with glazed tower looking out to sea.
