About the project

As part of the development of Brighton Marina, the existing Yacht Club portakabins were to be removed to construct new blocks of flats. The marina owners, Brunswick Developments, had offered the Club a new floating clubhouse, and agreed a Design & Build procurement package with Intermarine Ltd of Southampton, who manufacture marina pontoons.

Studio Four was commissioned by Intermarine to progress the building design, within a strict budget. The Club had already submitted their own independent Planning application for the clubhouse, with a distinctive wavy roof, which was not initially affordable within the budget, but which the Planners were now adamant had to be achieved. Studio Four therefore worked closely with the Club and the Local Authority to develop a scheme that met all the various criteria for this 350sqm floating building, one of the largest of its type in the UK. The new design was then taken through Planning, Building Regulations and construction detailing.

For delivery access, assembly of the pontoon structure and construction of the building had to be carried out at the eastern end of the marina, with the clubhouse then towed to its final location by Shoreham Port tug Adurni. The final manoeuvring of the new clubhouse was a delicate operation, with only 110mm of clearance to the new piles to which it is now moored.

Project Value: £1 million / Client: Intermarine / Brunswick Developments / Stage: Completed 2015
