No.s 15 and 16 Hawley Square - two doors down from our office at no. 13 - appear on Edmunds 1821 map of Margate, though their exact construction date remains unknown.  The two houses were laterally joined in the mid-C20th, and were Grade II Listed in the 1970s. Changes to the Hawley Square elevations include the loss of a bay window and fanlight doorways, present in both the photos of 1908 and the mid-C20th. The most significant change however is clear from the rear facade - large landscape-format metal-framed windows and two block-work wc annexes. Fabric investigations have revealed that central cross walls were detached from the party walls and constructed of mid-C20th brickwork (shown in pink on the plan below) along with parts of the upper rear facade. It is thought that the building was subject to fire damage leading to a loss of all of the interior and exterior timberwork, and much of the masonry it supported. Spectacular sea views are afforded from the third floor rear, which, along with our discovery that the top floor masonry is modern, lead to our proposal to open up the top floor entirely to command the view. The project has recently been granted Listed Building Consent, and we're now progressing with detail design.
