    Final Major Project
  • My final major is a design proposal for a bar to be placed in the heart of Hastings old town. 

    "The Fleet is situated in Hastings Old town atop the Harbor Arm, offering customers 360˚ views of the surrounding town and the beach. Hastings is one of Britain's oldest fishing ports. Boats have worked from the beach in front of the ancient town for over a thousand years, supplying Hastings with its basic industry and main tourist attraction. On the Stade there are more than 25 boats, the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe. The Hastings Fishermen's Protection Society preserves the fishing community's medieval right to carry on using that beach - known as the Stade - for ever, free of charge.
    The Society is based in Hastings Fishmarket, which was built in 1993 by a non-profit company created by the Society. The Society looks after a charity, the Fisherman's Institute, which owns a large building in the heart of Hastings Old Town. The Institute was founded in 1882 to help distressed fishermen and their families.
    We at THE FLEET continue to support our fishermen as all our seafood is always fresh and always from them."
