OWL Architects - Care - Pelsall Hall

 

 

Pelsall Hall
Walsall, Midlands

Scope: Completed

Client: The Greensleeves Homes Trust

Value: £3 million


Pelsall Hall was acquired by GHT in 2001 with a view to refurbishing what was a tired building and greatly expanding its facilities and size. Located in a Conservation Area the Hall has had a number of different uses and formerly included an assortment of out buildings. Prior to the approval of redevelopment plans the existing building was brought up to National Care Standards in readiness for the addition of two new residential wings and associated supporting accommodation – more than doubling the area of the original building. Preservation of the existing Hall’s visual presence was instrumental in the scheme’s development as stand-alone elements with glazed links utilising structural glass panels.
