Subject: 12 bedroom extension and internal alterations to an existing care home
Site: Shirebrook Priory, Retford
Status: RIBA Stages: A-E
Details: The proposed design envisaged an elegant single storey ‘pavilion’ adjoined to the main building via a glazed link to provide additional facilities for residents and staff, with over 640 sq.metres of new accommodation. From the outset the clients overriding principle of the design was to enhance the setting and character of the existing Listed building. The Grade II Listed main building which houses the core of the nursing home was to remain intact externally, with some substantial internal refurbishment. Along with the alterations to the Listed building we also proposed a design to replace the existing unsympathetic rear extension with a design that is more in-keeping with the site. The scheme complements the existing building as well as fitting within its wider context.
