The redevelopment of this former office site for Frontier Estates provides a new build 78 bed care home for the elderly. In addition the project provides a new build residential unit, together with converting the original buildings to provide 11 residential apartments.
The design of the care home has been carefully considered to provide views over the Darley Dale valley, whilst providing an internal layout for differing resident needs; residential, dementia and nursing care.
The scheme resolves complex issues with a sloping site, utilising sunken gardens and extensive south facing views to maximise residential amenity.
Contemporary in approach, the design provides a modern interpretation of the traditional local architecture, to provide a warm and welcoming environment.
