The new building is located on an awkward trapezoidal site, bounded by railway sidings and existing housing.
Externally, the design is a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional pitched roof volumes, with a combination of brickwork, render and timber cladding. Internally, residents enjoy a range of private and communal spaces with high levels of assistive technology offering maximum independence to each individual. Landscape design has been carefully considered and includes a glass water feature as a focal point.
The design incorporates a number of lessons learned from previous projects to refine the schedule of accommodation, further enhancing functionality and value for money.
