New Residential Accommodation

Liaise Loddon, the architect's client, provides residential care for young adults with disabilities including autism, severe learning difficulties and the associated problems such as epilepsy.  

This rural site north of Basingstoke was seen as an ideal location to provide a residential home for a number of young adults, living together with semi independence, but sharing communal facilities and activities. 

The architects worked with planning consultants and landscape architects to overcome potential objections to the new development. The site is situated within the countryside and therefore concerns regarding the affect on the countryside, its measure of sustainability and also the effect on traffic generation were all issues that needed addressing. The proposed single storey building replaces existing buildings currently on site, is mostly timber clad to sit within the rural surroundings and is designed with a low carbon footprint. Low pitched roofs fit sensitively behind mature trees and hedgerows.  Internally, wide corridors assist access, apartments and en-suites have adequate space for carers to assist, and quiet private areas are provided for each of the residents.

The completed proposals were submitted to the Architect's Panel of North Hampshire and receive wholehearted support.
