Extra Care Architects

Extra Care Architectural Design combines self-contained homes with care and support services. The care and support services are generally greater than with many Sheltered Housing schemes and Extra Care schemes often require a minimum of around 60 apartments to support the communal areas.
As with other forms of specialist housing for older persons, Extra Care aims to provide an enriching environment that supports residents in living independently for as long as possible with the reassurance of on-site assistance if needed.

At Quattro, our site-specific approach can often lead to the communal facilities being a resource for the wider community and this enlivens schemes whilst improving their economic sustainability. For instance, many of our schemes are designed with direct access for the Public at the front, with a more private residents only lounge area opening onto enclosed garden areas at the rear.

The quality of external spaces is always a prime consideration for our Extra Care schemes, particularly where space is often constrained. Our in-house Landscape Architecture expertise allows us to consider how we can provide enriching and diverse multi-sensory spaces right at the initial feasibility stages.

At Quattro, our experience also allows us to provide and incorporate the most up-to date guidance and legislative requirements to ensure for example that the risk of fire is appropriately mitigated.
