Located on the historical harbourside in Weymouth Deheers was originally a key part of the thriving 19th Century quay. The building has gone through many transformations and uses over the last 150 years and was a little unloved when purchased by local developer Mickey Jones.
Mickey’s vision was to breathe new life into this key heritage assets bringing into the 21st century whilst respecting the buildings heritage and character.
Rather than squeezing multiple small residential units into the existing floor plan, large spacious and open planned apartments have been created. The apartments are modern and clean but celebrate the texture and character of the existing building.
On the ground floor a thriving E Bike Cafe has taken residence bringing the life to the quayside.
The success of the scheme is due both to the ‘raise the bar’ approach of the client and by the skill, dedication and care of all the team that made the design a reality.
Presenting the vision at the planning stage was key to gaining the approval for this Grade II Listed building and the final development’s success has been recognised with a Civic Trust Award.
