ARCHITECT:Hunter and Partners
TYPE OF WORK:New Build
This one and two bedroom development at Willow Close and Malvern Court comprises seven new bungalows and 56 apartments for the over-55s.
The homes were constructed in partnership with Sovereign to enable older people currently living in three bedroom houses nearby to relocate to homes that were better suited to their needs. This in turn released their larger properties for local families.
The new development provides high quality, modern accommodation and includes combined kitchen and dining rooms for the residents, a spacious and comfortable sitting room and an outside space designed for relaxation.
The bungalows have been designed with wider doorways for wheelchair access and have in built hoisting facilities to enable movement from bedroom to bathroom to help residents remain in their homes for as long as possible.
The development was constructed to NHBC and Secured by Design guidelines and achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.
