Lower Mill

Lower Mill overlooks the river and is adjacent to a park. The new plan is to refurbish the listed buildings and build over 50, superior waterside assisted-living retirement homes for rent, all nestled within landscaped grounds over half a hectare.

Lower Mill

Residents will enjoy communal facilities and care support catered to their needs. The benefits include; a sustainable development with good access to public transport local shops and services, a scheme with a sense of place and character, taking on board the historic nature of the site, homes that are easy to read and navigate with barrier free access throughout, designed to incorporate Dementia Enabling principles and development that is secure, with both natural design measures and use of technology.

Our design proposal takes lighting, colour schemes and tonal contrast ensuring it is contemporary and dementia friendly with casting of shadows, audible signs and tactile information considered. It will offer flexibility with support for changing levels of frailty and comfortable resident communal areas with a range of facilities. The layout encourages social interaction which helps combat loneliness.
