Year: 2020
Status: Pending planning
Project Type: New Build
Project Value: £7 million

After a successful Lakeland EMI Care Home design, Millennium Care Group has appointed ACA to design a new-build, state-of-the-art Care Home at Lavender Hills Care Home in Ramsbottom.

The Brief

The brief was to accommodate 36 new bedrooms and 4 Extra Care apartments to form a Care Village at Lavender Hills Care Home, designed to be fully accessible, including the garden areas.

The Design

ACA’s design provides several communal areas comprising of a guest suite, meeting rooms, staff offices, laundry, separate lounge areas, dining/ activity room, kitchen, hair salon and hydrotherapy suite with changing places facility. In addition, external landscaping and car parking is included.

The apartments benefit from balcony areas to provide residents with a private external space.

The central terrace offers a number of activities, such as raised flower beds and bird watching huts in addition to seating bays protected by pergolas and small benches to encourage spontaneous interaction amongst the residents and the visiting community.

“We have a great relationship with Alex and his purpose driven mission behind the Practice is tightly aligned to our vision and models of care we want to deliver. Briefs and designs we discuss have consistently over delivered and I don’t believe that any other architectural practice has the capability of fusing a balancing act between design, therapeutic benefits of the built environment, commercial viability and aesthetics as well and as adeptly as ACA.” Omair Haider, Managing Director, Millennium Care
