A new 40-bed care home providing a range of services, inc ludign nursing, intermediate and recuperative care, therapy and ‘Step Down’ facilities.
This two storey building has been designed to take advantage of its location with views across The Downs and to provide a non-institutional and unintimidating building for patients and visitors. Inside, the residential accommodation is divided into a series of ‘villages’.
Treatment and therapy rooms are located at ground floor, accessed through corridors of varying widths and lengths, intentionally designed to create punctuated focal points and create visual interest throughout the building.
