#360 The Beacon Centre
New Build Bespoke Development
The Beacon Centre is a new-build, bespoke development for residents over 55 with visual impairments. We were commissioned at an early stage to develop the critical interior design of the centre to ensure that the users could use the centre to its full potential. The commission was won at a competitive interview over two other practices.
The scheme consists of 71 apartments, bar, restaurant, communal lounges, guest rooms, assisted bathrooms, and a village street with a triple height atrium. The spaces have a luxury hotel feel to them whilst subtly incorporating the necessary care aspects. The design process included extensive resident liaison workshops and textured art workshops to encourage the residents to take ownership of the proposals.
