In June 2020 South Kesteven District Council granted approval for the construction of 43 supported living apartments in Gorse Road Grantham, Lincolnshire.
The design team were to deliver suitable accommodation for individuals with a range of support needs and disabilities, whilst they were also presented with a series of site related challenges.
The team overcame these challenges following a constructive exchange with the Local Planning Authority to arrive at a site sensitive proposal, encompassing a non-overbearing form, mass and material palette.
An interesting landscaping scheme, with opportunities for residents to sit and socialise was created, culminating at the feature courtyard. The development also bears a number of facilities including a public cafe upon entrance.
