“The rehabilitation of a Grade 2 listed 1937 former Royal Masonic Hospital nurses’ home to new residential use creates the next chapter in this building’s life.”
The refurbishment and extension of the former nurses’ home to contain 68 units; a mix of studios to three-bedroom flats in single level and duplex format.
Original communal spaces will become individual unit features whilst the historic roof top sun terraces gain set back pavilions. Their design is inspired by the unique Elford Room; the nurses' common room.
New garden units employ the language of diverse original elements to complement the existing unique features. The east wing's communal sun lounges enjoy delicious curved pivoting steel framed windows, which will be refurbished; the renovated spaces become part of new private units.
Below grade parking satisfies modern lifestyle needs and respects the south facing formal courtyard garden. New integrated recycling and refuse areas will support modern sustainable living.
