Anjulita & Ladyslaude Court

Bedfordshire

This project was the inspiration of a local benefactor whose vision was to create the best possible care facilities for local people.

Situated in a beautiful rural location overlooking a new country park the development comprises two separate buildings that share communal facilities.

The first, Anjulita Court, is a 63 bed nursing and dementia care home. This impressive new building has a dramatic triple arch frontage to welcome residents and visitors into an interior full of open spaces.

The adjacent building, Ladyslaude Court, accommodates 22 exclusive one and two bedroom apartments. It offers 24-hour care and support and has been specifically designed to make life comfortable for people in their later years. There is a communal lounge with adjoining kitchenette and an assisted bathroom which also offers conventional bathing facilities. The residents further benefit from the use of a wealth of enhanced facilities within Anjulita Court including a café bistro, shop, chapel, media room, hydrotherapy pool, hair salon and therapy room.

We are privileged to have worked on such a scheme and with such visionary people especially as our involvement started at project inception when initial design ideas were first presented. We maintained very close contact with the client throughout all project stages, using our experience in delivering similar schemes to successfully interpret the client’s brief. This ensured that project costs and programme were tightly managed and gave our client complete control over every aspect of the project.

This exemplar scheme was opened by HRH The Countess of Wessex and was a Regional Finalist for the Southeast in the Civic Trust Awards 2012.
