Architecture, engineering and design group Aukett has submitted a detailed planning application on behalf of Trent Developments for a 66,714 m2 urban quarter on the seafront at Folkestone, Kent. The 7.1 ha site will incorporate 600 flats, a cinema, and 80,000 m2 of retail space. The curved, sail-like facades of the residential buildings play on their seaside location and act as wind deflectors to protect gardens.
