Bridgeton evolves with varying needs housing
November 27 2018
The three-storey development has been designed by John Gilbert Architects to Housing Varying Needs standards which includes a 10% allowance for wheelchair accommodation as well as measures to foster social interaction.
Attention will also be paid to people living with dementia with closes decorated to create a floor to floor identity within the building including high level covered walkways to the north and east.
In a statement the architects wrote: “The single common close provides extra security while also creating a focal point slightly offset from the corner. The circulation space will be serviced by one staircase and lift set off the main street and will benefit from a full height curtain wall screen system on all floors.”
Formed from a timber structural frame clad in brick and laminated panels with concrete and steel walkways the project aims to present a ‘robust’ elevations to the street.
