This Secure by Design project creates 15 en-suite bedrooms. Each room benefits from its own private terrace with large sliding glazed doors.
Each room has the flexibility to be heated and cooled by fan-coil units so the environment of the resident can be adjusted.
The central circulation and social space runs down the centre of two-wings, with high ceilings with daylight through continuous roof lighting.
The entrance lobbies are large open spaces, with adjacent fully glazed garden rooms which accommodate a ‘social-hub’ and café.
Low-energy fittings and plant will minimise demand and achieve the required BREEAM ‘Very Good’ .
