Client: Pennaf Housing Group
Value: under tender/negotiation
Completed: Summer 2017
Location: Llangefni, Anglesey
This scheme occupies a former school site close to the centre of the historic town of Llangefni, Anglesey.
By taking advantage of the existing topography we have developed a building which steps down the site to introduce a private garden to accommodate the needs of tenants suffering from dementia whilst allowing easy access and interaction with their neighbours.
The design concept centres on the provision of a dynamic and recognisable public facing building which changes its nature internally where it provides a more domestic scale and palette of materials.
These aesthetic concerns have been balanced against a desire to maintain a flexible approach to the design allowing adaptation in the future and to encourage a sense of identity and neighbourhood within the development.
