We are currently working as lead consultant for a design & build developer redeveloping the former Narracott Hotel in Woolacombe.
This large hotel site has, over the past century, evolved from humble beginnings as a collection of Victorian houses, into a sprawling hotel complex. Changes to tourism trends caused the original hotel business to struggle, and it was ultimately closed in favour of finding a new configuration to respond to 21st century visitor demands.
As a major surfing destination, Woolacombe caters for a huge influx of people during the warmer times of year, as such total of 55 luxurious apartments from 1-4 bedrooms are to be created, delivering much needed accommodation for visiting families. The project has been very well received locally, and has been viewed as an essential improvement to the area as a whole.
The existing building is currently undergoing significant alterations, with the rear sections being demolished to make way for 4 new apartment blocks and covered parking, and the front being remodelled to deliver a large restaurant, enclosed swimming pool, ancillary services and more apartments.
