Care Village as Part of Masterplan
Located on the south west side of the Catsbrain Farm Masterplan site, this scheme covers an area of approximately 5.33 acres (2.16 ha) and our remit was to come up with a proposal for the erection of a Class C2 Care Village comprising a 45no. Bungalows, 21no. townhouses and 14no. 1 & 2 bedroom apartments, with a communal club house to include a shop, library, gym, quiet room, residents lounge, dining room and hairdressing salon.
The proposed gross internal area is circa 14,400 sqm. External works include communal gardens and landscaping plus staff, visitor and resident car parking.
This development is about the provision of a series of building types differing in size and scale that are flexible and adaptable and allow the owners to adjust them to suit their needs as they age. In turn, that care will allow the nurturing and fostering of a community of individuals who live together in a contemporary and modern manner.
This masterplan is a design guide for the creation of comfortable and future-proofed homes for the over 55s. Our aim is to create an architecturally better care model that will better serve the elderly and enable them to stay living as independently as possible, for as long as they can, in their own homes.
