Chapel Nursery, Dartford
KLH Architects were appointed to assist in the repair and refurbishment of Dartford Chapel. Having been derelict since the late 1990s and suffering a major fire in the 2000s, leaving only the stone walls and charred rafters, it was purchased by Gaggle Nursery who set about restoring it to form a children’s nursery.
KLH Architects provided innovative design solutions to accommodate the necessary space requirements for the Nursery, forming new ground floor as well as additional first and second floors all integrated within an entirely new roof. The nursery has since expanded to occupy two floors with ancillary accommodation located within the new roof space.
A sensitive and beautifully executed project with credit to a dedicated client, the Chapel Nursery is an exciting project which has already formed a key focal point to the community in Dartford since its opening in late 2018.
