The Bartlet

THE BARTLET WINS RIBA AWARD

The Bartlet have been given a very prestigious award RIBA as the winners of the Restoration catagory during a dinner held at Trinity Park, Ipswich,

The judges commented:-

"Probably the most controversial in the re-use of old buildings has been the Bartlet Convalescent Home in Felixstowe, successfully and remarkably converted into apartments by Peter Blemings.  The whole building sits on top of a Martello Tower, the base of which is now a feature on the landward side.  It has been converted without losing any of the character or appearance of the previous use.  In fact, some locals suggested that the restoration has improved the building, tidied up overgrowing greenery and repaired and restored the damaged fabric.”
