About the project

Studio Four Architects were appointed by OAA Developments Ltd to obtain planning consent and produce a full technical design for a new building on a brownfield site in Bordon, Hampshire.

The building will consist of a care home for 8 residents and 10 separate independent living units which will be monitored from the care home. The development is to address a need for high quality care for people with severe learning difficulties and associated physical disabilities. The facility will be managed by Omega Elifar Ltd, a local care provider that has successfully offered this service for many years through a number of facilities in and around Bordon.

The site slopes 3m across the site and has 4 trees with Tree Preservation Orders which have constrained the plan of the building.

The care home will contain a hydrotherapy pool – with photovoltaic panels on the roof above; a circular central activity room will form the hub to the development. The site – which include a significant slope and a number of Tree Preservation Orders – resulted in a challenging design.
