This new build 64-bed care home at Quorn has been commissioned by Frontier Estates, to provide state of the art facilities within a much needed area. The existing site formed an under-used all-weather football pitch with the adjacent Quorn FC, and involved substantial negotiation pre-application with the Quorn FC and Sports England.
The home considers Dementia friendly design, and offers a spacious 64 bed environment for the elderly in excess of current CQC requirements. Externally the scheme was informed by the Quorn design guide, and looks to create a development that addresses the traditional nature of a care home massing, by introducing facades that relate to the local residential architecture.
