Burgess Park is a care home design for developer-operator Country Court. WGPA were briefed to bring a consciously contemporary design to the care home market in a way that was sensitive and carefully considered.
The result is a mixture of ‘fabric first’ interior, mixed with careful use of natural materials and good light – both natural and artificial. The building plan is rational with a central common space which has modest atria linking between floors to give a sense of community where it is ordinarily difficult to do so because of the different specialist needs of the building users.
The scheme is currently on site and is due to complete late in 2021.
