Extra-Care Apartments: Melrose Court, Poundbury

Client: Duchy of Cornwall, Yarlington Housing Group

Completion: 2018

A building that responds to three urban spaces: The Great Field; the boulevard; the piazza. The residents encounter these spaces through the terrace (Great Field), the garden (Boulevard) and the arcade (Piazza). The new building's elevations respond to these urban cues: rising up on the edge of the Great Field; enclosing the Boulevard garden on three sides; framing the Piazza.

This sixty-three apartment extra care building is for Yarlington Housing Group and was designed in collaboration with their architect, Noma of Bristol. Completed Summer 2018.
