Our Maidment Court scheme in Poole replaces an existing outdated care home. The new scheme comprises two buildings: one providing 47 integrated retirement community apartments and the other 40 care suites plus staff offices, a bistro, coffee lounge, activity room, shop and hairdressing salon.
The spacious apartments allow wheelchair use and are dual aspect with stacked south facing balconies providing shade and private outside space. To break down the scale and bulk, there are glazed links, deep recesses, varying heights and a palette of complementary colours resulting in the appearance of a cluster of buildings rather than one large mass.
The scheme, which was completed recently, meets both Lifetime Home standards and requirements of the HAPPI report.
