RIBA Suffolk Craftmanship Awards 2017 by architects studio

Craftmanship certificate

Patrick Allen and Associates are proud to announce that their involvement alongside Gipping Homes on the development of The Bartlet Hospital conversion into flats has won the RIBA Suffolk Craftmanship Awards 2017 under the Restoration category.

The project has been ongoing since July 2012 and a lot of hard work has gone into the detailing of the architectural features, resulting in a beautifully crafted restoration project, keeping the original features of the Bartlet Hospital whilst breathing new life into the building.


Judges comments:

"Probably the most controversial in the re-use of old buildings has been the Bartlet Convalescent Home in Felixstowe, successfully and remarkably converted into apartments by Peter Blemings (Gipping Homes). The whole building sits on top of a Martello tower, the base of which is now a feature on the landward side. It has been converted without losing any of the character or appearance of the previous use. In fact, some locals suggested that the restoration has improved the building, tidied up overgrowing greenery and repaired the damaged fabric."
