This project is located in St John’s Wood, adjacent to Regents Park and Lord’s Cricket Ground.
The client, a charitable provider of homes and care for the elderly, sought to replace outdated and institutional bed sit accommodation with an apartment based scheme which would be pioneering in the ways in which it responded to the issues of an ageing population.
Clusters of apartments can be readily converted to support dementia, allowing residents to remain in familiar surroundings as their needs change.
The existing residents on the site formed a co-design team which were closely involved in the development of the design.
Shared facilities include café, flexible activity space and roof gardens.
