Sadly we remain a little sore about this project. It is now over a decade since we won the architectural competition set by Christchurch Borough Council to design a new cliff top cafe. It was voted the favourite by both the judges and public but subsequently dismissed by the Council in favour of the building which now exists. Our backer, the restaurateur of Pebble Beach in Barton, was also deeply disappointed.
None-the-less, every cloud has a silver lining. As well as having a lot of fun designing it, we view our scheme as the best cafe that Highcliffe never had!
