Waverley Gardens, Bristol

  • 66 very sheltered housing units with associated communal facilities
  • Building for Life Gold Standard award – the first care project to receive such an award

The scheme creates a community for very frail residents from the local community, including people with dementia.  The unique layout maximises the site while providing a safe, comfortable and secure environment for the residents.  The linear design centred around internal and external courtyards encourages interaction and a sense of community.  Waverley Gardens has a range of facilities including a restaurant, shop, cinema, advice centre and a spa, which can also be used by elderly residents from the local area.
