This project involves the restoration of the historic Dover Maison Dieu, designed by the renowned Victorian neo-Gothic architect, William Burges. The project includes the recreation of internationally significant decorative schemes, a new street level visitor entrance to the Connaught Hall with improved access throughout the building. The Maison Dieu project seeks to preserve and protect the heritage of the building while also bringing it back to life and providing a sustainable future for it. The project involves restoring the historic areas of the building, including the Mayor’s Parlour, and creating new uses for the building, such as a holiday let in conjunction with the Landmark Trust and a café in the Victorian gaol cells. Once completed towards the end of 2024, the Maison Dieu will be permanently open to the public for the first time in its 800-year history and will contribute to the creation of a heritage quarter in Dover town centre.
