Eastbourne Youth Hostel

ERMC Hampshire architects were tasked with the design of East Dean Youth Hostel, a replacement to the original fire damaged building.  As the site was on a steep slope in a heavily dense woodland area of outstanding natural beauty, careful design was given to levels and topography.

Great thought and consideration was taken so as not to ruin the current ecology, whilst also taking into account the need by the YHA to not only replace the existing Hostel accommodation and facilities but to improve the facility by adding new marketing opportunities and sustainable features such as the 'sedum' roof and rainwater harvesting system.

We achieved all the aims of the Client, providing a successful well used modern facility.
