Guildford Plaza - Planning Consented
Duggan Morris Architects have won planning permission to deliver 100 one, two, and two and a half bed extra care apartments and shared communal facilities and gardens in the heart of Guildford, for client PegasusLife. The client purchased the site with the aim of delivering a high quality development for the care and support of older people. Additionally, the scheme consists of generous resident focussed housing provision, supplemented by first class wellness and communal facilities.
The scheme is set around a communal heart - a convivial space which brings together a restaurant with open kitchen, lounge, gym, studio and reception all ensuring a neighbourly interaction and social wellbeing that is at the heart of the PegasusLife’s ethos.
The scheme has been designed to subtly reflect the grain and character of Guildford’s inherent vernacular, creating interest and excitement in the urban fabric, whilst also sensitively responding to the site and its surroundings, protecting and enhancing the character of the nearby heritage assets and the privacy of nearby residential properties.
