Lichfield Road, Sutton Coldfield
67 Bedroom Care Home for Octopus Healthcare and designed for Care UK
The client for this Care Home is Octopus Healthcare, however, it was designed for Care UK to ensure that it met with their space and operational standards. The home is 3 storeys high and uses the slope of the site to provide gardens at the ground and first-floor level, with a large terrace providing outside space on the second floor.
The site was originally occupied by a modern car dealership, which influenced the contemporary proportions and materials during the planning process. The early discussions with the Local Authority tree officer allowed us to design around the preserved trees which dominated the site and view from the surrounding residential houses.
