Client

Scope

Working drawings for a new 65 apartment extra care living block in Warfield, Bracknell

Status

Completed 2017

65 extra care apartments, Bracknell

The building was designed as a square block located around a central courtyard to provide both an outlook and secure external space for the residents of the new development.  Providing both apartments and communal restaurants, kitchens, hairdressers, scooter stores, etc the scheme provided maximum flexibility for the end users to ensure both independence and social spaces.

Designed to echo the more traditional aesthetics of the adjacent developments the massing was broken down with both changed in building line and scale and a mix of traditional materials.
