Planning Confirmed for Fulham Care Home

The Hunters designed new 81-bed residential care home near Putney Bridge within the exclusive Hurlingham Conservation Area, has secured planning.

The site, within the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, has been vacant and derelict for several years. It is a restrictive, triangular site adjacent to the district line which runs above ground on a viaduct. Special consideration was placed on designing the building to minimise any external noise.  The specialist building caters for end of life and high dependent care of residents including those with dementia. 

Designed in ‘housing’ clusters of 4-10 bedrooms residents can share facilities including kitchenettes and living spaces, each floor will have two bedrooms with their own care team. A cinema, sensory room, activity area and other resident services are in the heart of the home. An attractive and listed façade has been retained as part of the design, creating an external wall and gate. The aim is to achieve the Stirling Gold Standard in dementia design, something that Hunters delivers on many of our care homes. 

Creating the care home enables local residents to stay in their area receiving social and support network care.

Our client is the Care Concern Group with Knight Frank acting as property consultants. 

James Wallace, Director at Hunters commented ‘It’s one of a number of care homes we are designing in London, as the population ages we are looking at innovative architectural solutions to create more and better homes to enjoy later living. The new home on Hurlingham Road will enable more people to access state of the art facilities and care, we look forward to completion.’
