Home design with care, not a care home.
This small, unique project involved the significant adaptation of an existing house, as well as construction of a new hydrotherapy pool, to meet the needs of a young man with acute physical impairment following an accident. Whilst on one level, the challenge was to provide a house that was fully accessible, it was also important to create a home, designed to reflect the character of the client. The layout of the property was largely dictated by the routine and requirements of the client, but great emphasis was placed on aspect, views and sunlight in the creation of the rooms and spaces.
