McHugh Stoppard wins planning for 'five-star' care home - images

  • Comment
McHugh Stoppard Architecture has received planning consent from Liverpool City Council for this striking 'older people's' care home for developer Greenacres.

The £2.1 million scheme, which is to be built in Liverpool's Knotty Ash conservation area, will be constructed from sustainable materials and is, according to McHugh Stoppard director Daniel Smith, '100 per cent recyclable'.

Smith said the 'contemporary styled' building - which will boast 52 en-suite bedrooms - will be clad in oxidised bronze-copper shingles, a design which he said 'respected both the scale and the character of existing buildings in the Knotty Ash Conservation Area'.

He added: 'The brief was to create a modern five-star environment as an alternative to the usual drabness of older people's care homes.

'Residents will enjoy the light and spacious feel, and their families will feel confident that they are in a beautiful, as well as caring, environment.'

Work is expected to start on site this September and construction should, says Smith, take 12 months.
