Barnes Lane, Sarisbury Green

75 bedroom care home

Development: Planning application 2018 Location: Sarisbury Green Client: Prime plc

The proposed care home is located off Barnes Lane in Sarisbury Green, a suburb of Fareham, and comprises of a parcel of land of circa 2 acres which is currently occupied by a single dwelling and is enclosed by substantial mature trees to its boundaries.

The client brief was for a care home that would convey a modern, friendly, non-institutional feel and which is domestic in scale. Internally, the home will provide 75 residents bedrooms laid out in five suites of approximately fifteen bedrooms, specifically designed to deliver the highest standards of living space over three floors, as well as providing a broad range of internal and external communal facilities to engage and reward the residents.

The final design and palette of materials was developed in consultation with the planning authority, with the materials chosen to provide a soft palette (stock bricks and muted colour cladding), which helps the home blend into its natural environment, whereas the building form and varied roof lines has allowed the facades to be articulated so that the care home does not appear overly large, or monolithic.
