The Northern Ramparts


Alderney, Channel Islands


Structural Engineer:


Main Contractor:


SOUP were approached to design an accessible replacement dwelling on the Northern Ramparts of Fort Corblets, Alderney. The existing dwelling is a combination of timber and stone structures that is beginning to show the toll of the harsh Atlantic weather. SOUP were asked to undertake a feasibility study where we looked at replacing and consolidating the fragmented dilapidated structures and replace them with a new dwelling.

The client wishes to develop a high quality scheme sympathetic to its historic settings. The scheme offers modern living spaces within a building that provides shelter and protection from the harsh environment taking massing and materiality cues from the fort it sits within.

SOUP successfully gained planning permission in spring 2019 and are currently working through the Developed Design stage.
