The proposal for the extra care facility provides 50+ extra care units comprising of one & two & two plus bedroom apartments.

Each unit is self-contained but is supported by private health care communal facilities and a garden space. A significant improvement to the relationship of the extra care facility with the local context has been a key considerations for design.
