Retirement Village Hull

Project Specifications

Location: Hull, East Yorkshire

Client: Humber NHS Foundation Trust

Year: 2014

Status: In Development

Project Type: New Build

Project Value: £15m

Project Scope

ACA has produced a feasibility study and options appraisal for a Retirement Village Hull, which specialises in Dementia and Long Term Condition (LTC) Care in Hull.

The design includes: 6 holiday cottages, 36 retirement apartments, communal facilities, day-treatment clinic facilities and a 36 bed facility for challenging behaviour.

The proposed masterplan is inspired by the medieval Italian town of San Gimignano in Italy, where a system of Piazzas and landscaped areas form the heart of the community.

The Village is designed as a vibrant facility for older people, which is sensitive to the needs of the individual and responsive to its settings. It offers a comfortable, functional space that is legible, person-centred, easily accessible and easy to maintain.


What Our Client Says

“Having an indepth knowledge of care environments, ACA consistently strive to provide sensitive, innovative and patient orientated design solutions.”

Rob Atkinson – Projects and Strategic Development Manager, Humber NHS Foundation Trust
