Case study: Garnet House

Garnet House was the final phase in a 93-home project for the client on Nottingham's Denman Street Central and the old Globe pub.

On the site of a former pub, these contemporary care and support flats were designed sensitively and creatively, to maintain a homely feel while also providing necessary support facilities. The flats have been built with historic industrial features, to blend in with the nearby buildings and reflect the scheme’s heritage.

"This area of Radford had long been on my list of areas I want to improve. Over the years we had real problems with anti-social behaviour here. The old pub attracted squatters and there were a number of fires. Our partnership with NCHA has completely transformed the area and we’ve had people queuing to move in to these lovely new, warm homes."
