DWA Architects has completed a new care facility in Doddington, Cambridgeshire.
The main Askham House building of Askham Care Village has now been completely refurbished and extended and a new 24-bed younger person care facility added to the main building, Askham Grove.
Askham Grove features a mix of bedrooms and self-contained flats designed for younger people with physical disabilities and includes features to help with rehabilitation.
Askham Care Village, a 10-year project for DWA Architects, offers residential, nursing and dementia care facilities for older people in two separate homes and specialist care for younger people with disabilities in three further separate homes. In total there are 109 bedrooms plus four rehabilitation apartments as well as staff accommodation and head office, conference and staff facilities.
David Ward, Managing Director of DWA Architects, said: “We are proud of our long term involvement in this high quality care village that offers a range of specialist care environments for both older and younger people.
“Our work has been to help to evolve and add to the village and to incorporate best practice design and features into the new and converted elements of the development.”
The development has previously won the care industry Pinders Care Home Design Awards in the younger person’s category, and has once again been nominated for the awards in 2019.
