Extra-care flats, Evesham

Evesham, Worcestershire

This is our first extra-care project, dating from 1998. Our competition-winning proposals for this town centre site retained and re-used two existing buildings, to provide a variety of environments for residents and to make a ‘memory’ of what had gone before (an existing shop front became the hairdressing salon, for example). An existing nineteenth century out-rigger extension was demolished to make space for a top-lit ‘winter garden’ which became the café and hub of the communal facilities; and new-build flats were added to the rear of the site, arranged around two private courtyard gardens.

This project not only provided homes for 43 local people but it also acted as a catalyst for the improvement and up-grading of nearby buildings.
