Initial design work on this project began in 1997 with a partnership between North British Housing Association (Developer) and St. Annes Shelter & Housing Action (Building User Group). Eight prospective residents with special needs were identified at an early stage and their families and carers were deeply involved throughout the design development. Phil Newbold, Senior Associate at Dewjo'c Architects, managed the consultation, design and construction phases of this £430,000 project on a tight budget but with an extended programme

 

The aim of this project was to provide a domestic family environment for residents with varying degrees of disability, combining spacious rooms for wheelchair users with specialised facilities and equipment to enable staff to meet all the residents' needs. The building is, in concept, two four-bedroomed semi-detached bungalows with a small centre core for staff facilities. The project was completed in February 2001
