Grand redesigns: sheltered housing 'chic'

Case Study 90

This Housing LIN Case Study no 90 highlights the award winning improvements made at Castle Court, a remodelled sheltered housing scheme managed by Derwentside Homes on the site of a previous care home in the former mining community in Annfield Plain, County Durham. The approach adopted in redesigning the site was one of sheltered housing 'chic'. This was achieved by working closely with residents to help inform the architecture, interior design and landscaping to create the high quality environment desired.
