Case study: Earls Court, Nottingham

A former pub and car park in Nottingham has been transformed into 23 supported living one-bed flats for NCHA with support from Nottinghamshire County Council.

We have worked closely with the care and support team at NCHA on all design decisions to ensure they have a building that meets the needs of their new tenants.

Due to the triangular shape of the site, the new building stands proud with the corner of the building featuring a ‘ship’s bow’ which has been enhanced by contrasting materials.

“Sensitively designed, trauma-informed spaces impact our wellbeing. Creating beautiful spaces bring about positive benefits to not only the people that live in care and support services, but also those who work in them. The design of Earls Court has been created in such a way, that the very landscape of the building will contribute towards improving the positive outcomes of the people who will live there.”
