Project: Buck Wood View
Location: Gleadless Road, Sheffield
Client: Northern Counties Housing Association for Community Health Sheffield NHS Trust
Buck Wood View is a development of 5 no. bungalows, 2 no. residential homes, a 12-bed Nursing Home and Snoozelum for People with Learning Disabilities. The residents were being transferred from other accommodation and their individual needs were assessed and catered for in the detail design of each building.
The site is located within a large suburban estate, and the buildings and landscaping are designed to blend the new development into this existing community.
The Nursing Home encloses a landscaped courtyard which includes a “Sensory Garden” with planting chosen for stimulating smell, touch and taste.
