Award-winning 62 bedroom Elderly and Dementia Care Home

Anjulita Court

Anjulita Court 



 



 



 



This unique, award-winning 62 bedroom Elderly and Dementia Care Home is situated in a key location on the edge of a new housing development at the head of a tree-lined boulevard. This urban linear park forms the main pedestrian and bridle path through the new housing development to the countryside beyond.

The dominating central timber framed archway, donned ‘The Grand Arch’, visually serves as an entry to the countryside from the new suburb. In earthy, heather-coloured render, the curving walls and distinctive tapering brickwork columns signal the public realm; internally this area houses the public facilities such as the Café, hydrotherapy pool, treatment and therapy rooms.

‘The Grand Arch’ separates the 2 wings which act as separate families on each level. To the rear they are linked with a 2 storey timber and glass structure, creating a private and secure landscaped courtyard which contrasts with the countryside around the site.

The building was officially opened by HRH The Countess of Wessex in January 2012.

“Anjulita Court presents an obviously impressive external appearance, incorporating innovative structural elements with an attractive pallet of materials and colours, but the attention to detail internally is of an even higher standard. The imaginative layout serves to flood all areas with natural light and provides excellent choices of communal space for residents to enjoy individually or together. The architects’ brief was to put aside the usual care home themes and they have successfully created something both visually striking and sympathetic to the needs of its residents”. Pinders Awards Judges’ citation.
