Extra Care Residential Development

Oundle, Northamptonshire

A development of 24 flats for the elderly in need of care, complete with communal and ancillary facilities. A ‘rotunda’ restaurant links this extra-care development to the nearby care home and acts as the architectural ‘hinge’ in the shift of scale between the two-storeys massing of the adjacent care home and the three-storeys massing of the extra-care flats. The latter restores the road-frontage urban grain of the location, a quality sadly lacking in its predecessor, a 1960s local authority residential home for the elderly.
