Role: Planning, Design & Project Management
Scope: Conservation Area, Extension, Alteration
Client: The Greensleeves Homes Trust
Value: £1.8 million
The project comprised the extension and major refurbishment of a private residential care home located on Oulton Broad in Suffolk. OWL Architects obtained planning and Conservation Area consent for the creation of new resident’s rooms over three storeys together with staff, welfare and managerial accommodation placed to the front of the existing building. The kitchen was remodelled and additional food storage and service areas provided within the existing envelope. Extensions to the side of the property included new day and dining rooms with outstanding views over the nearby Broads. The new works were of traditional cavity construction with Cambrian slate roofs modelled to sympathise with the style of the existing building and character of the local area. Careful project management enabled the home to remain operational throughout the works.
