Stafford Avenue

Subject:Class C2 Care Facility for Children

Site:Stafford Avenue

Status:RIBA Stage 3


Details:The proposed Class C2 Residential Care facility is split over two floors, with two accessible bedrooms located at ground floor level and a further four bedrooms located on the first floor. The bedrooms are positioned to keep residents distanced, whilst maintaining garden views from bedroom windows. The scheme was designed to give the appearance of two individual dwellings, with a rear single storey extension wrapping around a central courtyard garden. The primary target of the proposals was to maximise the development options, whilst consciously minimising the risk of ‘over development’, ensuring the aesthetics of the proposals are contemporary yet sympathetic with the local area.
