QUAY HOUSE Quay 2c is a multi disciplinary design practice whose studio is also home to architect Ken Taylor and artist Julia Manheim. The development was previously a milk distribution depot; it was then transformed into an unusual domestic project through its conversion, with four first floor beach huts as a series of bedrooms and a bathroom, and three new build loft style apartments tabling over the sculpture studio. This project has been a long time in the making, and it illustrates just how complex and difficult a self generated project can be, even though the architect did a lot of the building work himself.
