Homeless Hostel

Tredegar, South Wales

The project is a replacement of an out-dated Hostel for the Homeless, for one of our Housing Association clients; with a high design priority on the achievement of a sustainable development to BREEAM Eco Homes ‘Very Good’ Standard. When completed this new hostel will provide accommodation for single people, in ten bed-sits (including one disabled bed-sit); and for families, in ten 2-bedrooms apartments. It will also provide a communal lounge and dining accommodation; and staff facilities, over-night accommodation, interview rooms and offices. The development follows Royal National Institute for the Blind recommendations for colour and tonal constrasts.
