Allix's Shipyard

Allix's Shipyard plaqueThis project, which began in 1999, is to revamp Allix's Shipyard at Havre des Pas. The plan, drawn up by architect Richard Le Sueur, with input from the Vingtaine and people from the Havre des Pas area, is to amalgamate the existing public area on the promenade with the garden area to make one large area from the promenade to the main road along Havre des Pas. The plan for this new enlarged area features a large boat like structure to represent the maritime history of the site with planting designed to be able to withstand the marine environment. This imaginative plan is financed by the Urban Renewal sub-committee and the Vingtaine, was completed in March 2003 and won a Jersey Design Award in 2004. More
