Catch House is a new two-storey private house drawing inspiration from the simple, traditional Maritime Architecture of fisherman's huts and boat sheds, constructed in a simple palette of materials reflecting this stretch of Kentish coastline.

The site is positioned between a 10-ton weight limit bridge and the beachfront, and thus has challenging access to the project.


Completed works include the swimming pool concrete pours and the plant-room to facilitate the pool. The works are now focused on completing the drainage and the raft foundation for the house.

  • Design and installation of temporary structural works, piling, waterproofing, steelwork connections, corten steel details, staircase, mechanical and electrical installations
