Whisstocks Boatyard and Nunns Mill

The buildings are located in a very sensitive part of Woodbridge adjacent to the Grade I listed Tide Mill and in the River Deben Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

In August 2013, The Suffolk Coastal District Council Planning Committee approved the scheme with a unanimous vote. The officers' report said that the design would: "…enhance the setting of the listed buildings by complementing and respecting their intrinsic form and appearance (without slavishly copying them)…It will create a new building group of distinctive and expressive architecture form and appearance which will make a positive contribution to the area; and conservation area."

Developed by Feilden+Mawson's Norwich office, the project has recently won a Suffolk Craftmanship Award.
