Hemingway joins Dreamland design team

Having successfully completed the emergency works at Margate's Deamland site, Guy Hollaway Architects are looking forward to progressing the forthcoming phases of work for the £10million project with the Hemingway Design team.

Building on the success of the Turner Contemporary Gallery, the Dreamland project will earmark a significant milestone in the overall regeneration scheme for Margate and enhance Margate's reputation as one of the top 10 destinations in the world.

First opened in the 1860's, Dreamland is the oldest amusement Park in the UK and the regeneration will aim to restore the park back to it's former glory, creating the worlds first Heritage Theme Park and preserve what is an important part of our British cultural heritage. The initial phase of the project is due for completion in early 2014 and will see the restoration of the Grade II* listed Scenic Railway, repairs to the 1930's cinema building, the introduction of a new learning centre and community space along with the reopening of the park entrance.

The collaboration between the Hemingway Design team and Guy Hollaway Architects will aim to realise the Dreamland Trust’s vision of "a living, breathing, multi-sensory environment telling Dreamland's rich historic story using art, design, music and architecture."
