We are pleased to announce that the £147,000 project to provide a new 6 bedroom care home for the Registered Care Charity The Field Lane Foundation was handed over to the client today.
An existing single dwelling house has been completely remodelled to provide supported housing for people with learning difficulties. The result is a six bedroom home, each complete with modern ensuite bathrooms, together with a new large communual lounge and kitchen area. It was a particular requirement of the brief that the project avoid the austere institutional feel of many such developments and provide the charity with somewhere which has the feeling of a real home. Careful selection of the finishes was needed to ensure that while this aim was acheived the requirements for the end users were also met.
