Croft Architecture designs landmark waterfront development

A striking waterfront development is creating waves in Weymouth and is helping to enhance the growing reputation of a Staffordshire Architect.

Croft Architecture, based at the Staffordshire Technology Park, Stafford, has won the appointment to design a new £35 million residential care village in Weymouth alongside the 2012 Olympic yachting venue.

After beating strong competition from a number of national practices to win the appointment, Croft Architecture is now developing the impressive designs ready to make a planning application in January 2012.

Managing Director Carl Croft said: “We have developed a sensitive design which fits well with the harbour side setting and the extensive facilities will also be available to the local community.

“I have just returned from a very well-attended consultation exercise with local residents in Weymouth and we were very pleased with the extremely positive feedback to our designs.”

Carl, 31, of Meir Heath, established his own practice almost three years ago and offers a full range of design services.

He has worked on several local projects including the Keele University Earth and Space Centre, medical facilities for Sir Robert Peel Hospital, Tamworth, numerous school projects and several residential schemes.

“We have a great team here at Croft Architecture and we have won work across a wide range of projects from large care villages to individually designed homes and house extensions,” added Carl who revealed he was looking to take on additional staff due to Croft Architecture’s success in securing new contracts.
