- Development Type: Extra Care

- Architect: Glancy Nicholls Architects
- Start on Site: April 2019

The Extra Care Living scheme includes both shared ownership and social rent apartments, as well as a range of stunning communal facilities including a communal lounge, activity room and guest suite, plus a café/bistro and hair salon open to the wider community.
In what was a fairly confined site, we worked closely with the developing partners to ensure that space was maximised. By using a mixture of two and three storey blocks, building some sections effectively into the ground and including additional banking on the landscaped areas, we were able to ensure the scheme was successfully adapted to the available space.
“Lavender Meadows is a fantastic scheme which brings dozens of much-needed specialist apartments to Stratford-upon-Avon.”
