Project Description :

The Rest Convalescent Trust had been accommodated within their Grade 2 Listed Building since its construction in the late 19th Century. In recent years it had become no longer fit for purpose and the Rest Trustees decided to create a new facility.

 

Our philosophy was to create a sustainable development that allowed this historic charity to continue with its important convalescent work and in doing so breathe new life into the Listed Building they were to vacate.

 

Schemes were developed for both a new 38 bed Convalescent Home and the Listed Building, which boasts benefactors such as Florence Nightingale, was redesigned as apartments.

 

The Home’s boomerang plan allows the wonderful views of the sea and coastline to be captured by every bedroom. The Public side of the building is separated from the main bedroom wing by a central lobby which contains a relaxation area containing a memorabilia wall.
