This extra care scheme for Leeds City Council and Henry Boot Construction contains 18 one-bed and 27 two-bed contemporary apartments. Designed to adapt to the changing needs of ageing residents, each apartment features a generous living space, kitchen, and level access shower.
A bright, welcoming entrance lobby gives access to communal facilities, including the spa, restaurant, and a dining room where residents can entertain guests. The lounge opens onto an enclosed landscaped garden, which uses outdoor space to help residents engage in interests and hobbies essential for health and wellbeing. Visitor access is restricted to communal areas to maintain a safe and secure living environment.
To help the council address fuel poverty and set a new benchmark for their new build programme, the building’s specification comes close to meeting Passivhaus thermal standards. The development aspires to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating for energy efficiency.
