Project Description

Name – Old Court House Hotel
Client – Dandara
Location – Grouville, Jersey

The Old Court House Hotel is located in Gorey Village in the eastern parish of Grouville. It is approximately 4.7 miles from St. Helier and around nine miles from Jersey Airport. The site is just 100 metres from the coastline and some 600 metres from Gorey Harbour and its diverse leisure and amenity activities.

The existing buildings are in various states of repair and have been adapted and extended in a piecemeal fashion over several years. The resultant architectural form is fragmented, lacking in visual and material quality and contributes little to the overall character and quality of the village.

The design of this scheme therefore aims to repair the streetscape at Old Road in particular and to provide a new residential development that will enhance the overall character and visual quality of the area whilst providing a range of modern, adaptable family homes and apartments. The client has a very good track record of residential regeneration within Gorey and a key concern of this development is to ensure that it is a well integrated and sustainable place that protects and builds upon the existing context and character of the neighbourhood.
