Comfortable new homes
New homes are arranged in clusters of ten, spread across two floors. Shared facilities and generous circulation spaces provide opportunities to meet other residents and form a strong community.
Bright airy corridors will have seating in places where smaller groups of residents can meet for a coffee and a chat.
Floors are connected by double height spaces, and large windows at the end of all the corridors provide good daylight and ventilation
Each cluster shares a small terrace and laundry/drying facilities
Internal windows from individual kitchens into the communal corridor helps residents feel connected to their neighbours. Space is made outside front doors to personalise each entrance
Charity and Community Hub
The building goes beyond simple Almshouses; we will be providing a charitable hub for the residents and the wider community. Community rooms and charity offices are on the lower floors, with a large garden for residents at roof level.
