A new Extra Care Centre for Wiltshire Council comprising 39 two bedroom and 8 one bedroom apartments with communal and support facilities for residents and members of the local community. The 0.7 hectare site on Victoria Road in Devizes is well located, being close the town centre.
The new building is largely 3 storeys in height, with brick elevations and shallow pitched roofs. Two north-south wings of apartments are linked together by the communal accommodation to form a courtyard open on the south side to gardens and mature trees.
The show home was opened in the new year, Councillors Jonathon Seed and Sue Evans cut the green ribbon and explored one of the scheme’s 47 apartments. The show home has been fitted-out to illustrate that specialist housing does not have to feel institutional and reflects the lifestyle many of us hope to enjoy in our retirement.
