Project Description

New waterside housing along the restored historic quayside in Eling, Totton.

Western Design Architects researched and studied the design of waterside housing along the south coast, visiting numerous towns and villages including Lymington, Poole, Bosham, Emsworth and Lyme Regis. Our housing design reflects the character and heritage of traditional maritime house types.

In this residential development project, great attention to detail was key to the design with polychromatic brickwork and inset stone to match the original steam mill and quayside. Projecting bays reflect the historic sack hoists of the mill building.

All the multiple housing including the side terrace adjacent to the waterside was built on an elevated plateau giving a traditional quayside feel.
