#427 Chestnut Grange
Extra Care Scheme, Trent and Dove Housing Association
The Space Studio won the interior design scope of works for this 67 bed Extra Care scheme against 2 other practices following a presentation and site visit to the recently completed Beacon Centre. Our scope of work covered communal spaces to include restaurant, coffee bar, hair salon, corridors, lounges and the show apartment. The concept is to give a hotel-like, quality feel.
Our early appointment allowed us to have more involvement in the design process and implement any changes to ensure the space fully met the requirements of the user group and that there was a synergy with the architects vision.
We hosted several tenant meetings for the “Friends of Chestnut Grange” to consult and involve them on decisions regarding colours, materiality and furniture. We also arranged a visit for members of staff from Trent and Dove to the proposed furniture factory and showroom to satisfy any concerns on quality and suitability and to see what bespoke options were available.
