Care home designer, DWA Architects, has submitted plans to South Holland District Council for a 61-bed care home on the site of the former Birds Public House in Spalding, Lincolnshire, on behalf of Glenholme Healthcare.
The design of the home is traditional in nature picking up on the local style in this suburban location, and also incorporates features to enable the home to continue functioning in the event of a flood occurring.
A raised level garden terrace is proposed so that residents’ ability to use garden areas is not inhibited. There will be a welcoming hall to receive relatives and visitors to the home before going to the upper floor accommodation with there being two floors of bedrooms split into two distinct sections.
David Ward, Managing Director of York-based DWA Architects, said: “This has been a very interesting project to work on, in order to design a home that can meet the needs both of the community in Spalding whilst being aware of the potential flood risk in the area.’’
“We have now submitted the plans with a decision expected in April. This project will deliver a traditional style home with state of the art facilities, designed to complement its surroundings.”
