The new build is an extension of what was previously the Nurses home and is to be built on the site of the former swimming pool. The plan extends the line of the façade of the former nurse’s home, the existing parapet line is respected and the rhythm of its fenestration interprets that of the existing building.
A ‘English’ patio separates the building from the street. A seat is formed by the balustrade providing the users and passersby with a place to pause. This seat makes its way into the entrance foyer where it becomes the reception desk.
The entrance foyer frames a view through to the long courtyard where a number of existing trees have been retained. The courtyard elevation zigzags in response to the trees and the geometry of the adjacent buildings.
