A 67-bed residential care home built on the site of the former Sweet Pea Bowling Club. Over three-stories, the building provides specialist care for the elderly. A new bowling green and pavilion is also provided for the bowls club.

The ground floor has a café/bistro, a library, a cinema, a bar/pub, a hairdressing salon and a lounge which opens out onto an external patio space. Separate lounge and dining spaces are provided on each of the upper floors.

The lounge and dining facilities at all three residential levels overlook the bowling green with roof terraces above to allow views out over the activities on warm days. The communal café/bistro and bar are located centrally in the plan and serve as the entrance to the facility, whilst also connecting directly out on to the residents’ communal garden space. The ground floor facilities are shared by residents and visiting family members. The facilities included, along with the layout of the home, have been designed to encourage a variety of age groups and communities to congregate within the public areas.
