DLR Architects and DMOD Architects have designed a unique development of 21 one bedroom accessible senior citizen units with generous common room facilities for residents ordered around an elevated garden courtyard, all assembled sensitively over three levels on this steeply sloping site purchased from Parish lands close to amenities and bus routes. The setting is classic suburban and the elements of the scheme have been selected to respect the existing built form, scale, character and residential amenity of the area. The units have own door access with some units addressing street level to provide passive surveillance and some have small private patio areas.

Accessibility Information

There is a lift to facilitate access between the courtyard garden and the lower ground floor parking area in addition to the series of ramps between these levels. As all dwellings are immediately accessible from either the Courtyard or Broadford Rise by way of level thresholds this extends the lift and ramp access to all dwellings except the 2no. at first floor level.
