Our project with Coffey Architects ‘Moor’s Nook’ is shortlisted in the RIBA South East Awards 2020.
A once-derelict industrial laundry facility site has become 34 light-filled, one- and two-bedroom flats for later life over a horseshoe-shaped plan. It includes two communal courtyards – one for the town and one for residents – and a refined brick colonnade that guides users into the building with a gentle transition from public to private space. Spacious and accessible dual aspect homes cater to varying mobilities; features such as social entries, built-in public seating, a communal kitchen/lounge and a shared residents’ courtyard help combat loneliness.
