Kay Elliott’s prestigious mixed use Dart Marina was the international runner-up in the Best Marina Development in the World category of the Daily Mail National Property Awards, 2007. It has also won two further awards at national and regional level.
CLIENT: Dartmouth Land Company
CONSTRUCTION COST: c.£21m including civils
COMPLETION DATE: 2006
Described by the Planning Inspector as a “scheme of excellence”, this mixed-use riverside development comprises 45 residential units, a 110-berth marina and facilities for boat owners, luxury spa, swimming pool, gymnasium and popular bistro, Wildfire.
Central to Kay Elliott’s success was our design approach which recreated the local vernacular and ensured the buildings had a traditional appearance – an important factor in gaining consent. We complimented this with contemporary interiors that would meet the high expectations of residents.
The site is a former ship yard and required extensive marine civil engineering works prior to construction with the formation of new quays and marina facilities. The residential building utilises modern construction techniques for speed and simplicity but in a manner which works in tandem with the overall design ethos of this unique and sensitive development.
Dart Marina is light and airy, spacious, contemporary and set within a social, cultural and sporting setting.
