About this project

 2012 – Winner of Pinders Healthcare Design Awards. New Build, Young Persons category

Askham Court care home opened in Spring 2011, completing a village community at Askham in Doddington, Cambridgeshire. The main design objective was for the creation of a 12 bed unit in which residents are given the best supporting facilities. 

The building sits on the northwest corner of the site forming the closing component of a landscaped courtyard and range of buildings. The entrance opens out into a large central foyer area. From here there are two bedroom wings and behind it the dayspace provision for the home.

At the rear of the building there are a series of patios andgarden areas with the bedrooms opening directly outwards onto them. The building is of traditional design with yellow brickwork and slate roofs totally in character and harmony with the surrounding buildings.
