The site on Yewtree Lane in Northern Moor, sits between Edgeley, to the east, and Cheadle, to the west. The site is to be redeveloped from an existing care home with car park and service area into a new 59-bedroom care home. The building has been split between three residential floors, accommodating 59 resident bedrooms with en-suites; 17 bedrooms on ground floor, 22 bedrooms on first floor and 20 bedrooms on the second floor, with ancillary space located in a basement level situated under approximately half of the building. Each floor of resident bedrooms is separated by a day space which breaks up the corridors whilst providing seating areas, activities and stimulation for the residents. Overall, the floor plates stack with the lounges and dining rooms in the same location on each floor. The building has been designed from the inside out, and then refined in response to its context. Its form has been balanced with its function so that the operator can provide comfortable and homely environment.
