The new extension to Little Brook House Residential Care Home at Warsash has been handed over to the client.
This single-storey addition to a Listed Building provides 5 new en-suite bedrooms, an assisted bathroom, a sitting area and a new platform lift to existing first floor accommodation.
The building steps to follow the garden contours down to the stream, from which the original House takes its name. Shallow corridor ramps inside allow a smooth transition between pairs of bedrooms at different levels; an ingenious solution to a tricky Planning problem.
Phase 2 involving refurbishment of existing bedrooms is now under way, and Planning and Listed Building applications for a new lift and staircase connected to the original listed farmhouse have been submitted.
