Jennings Building Porthcawl Wales

The Grade II Listed Jennings Warehouse lies within the Bridgend Waterfront and Harbour regeneration areas and is a key catalyst supporting Bridgend Council’s aspirations for the wider regeneration of the town and waterside.

Jennings Building Porthcawl
Jennings Porthcawl Wales

The brief was to bring the derelict former warehouse back into useful life as a mixed-use facility, attracting growth and regeneration on the harbour. Using the model successfully developed through previous regeneration schemes with LoftCo, our team designed a series of interventions into the building fabric, and through a continuous process of dialogue with the local Conservation Officer and CADW we were able to maximise views into and out of the building while being respectful of the original fabric.

Loft-style residential units are situated in the upper areas and three new cafe/ restaurant units are provided at ground level facing onto the harbour with a large new outdoor seating terrace to the west facing the beach, and with a new glazed extension aspect to the town. All three businesses are start-ups by local entrepreneurs who were attracted to this building as a beacon of investment in Porthcawl.
