Worcester Park is a purpose built block which was constructed in four parts and comprises a mix of elderly care accommodation. The building contains approximately 40 apartments situated across three primary blocks which sit on a north-south axis with internal linkways between each block.
Hoban Design were integral to the development of the brief which comprises of a series of internal and external alterations. At this site, an additional storey to the rear and central block and extensions to the ground floor plan has allowed for improved storage facilities and an additional 21 flats on top of the existing 35.
As part of the design process to successfully integrate the new homes within the existing building, new communal circulation routes and amenity spaces have been incorporated. Additionally, Hoban Design have included new lifts throughout the new extensions to provide access for all residents. There is new ancillary space on each floor and our designs have ensured that each new flat is dual aspect. Planning permission for this development was granted in early 2020. Hoban Design are now undertaking the design detailed stage of the works.
