Devonshire Court, Leicester
Care Home Refurbishment
Nicholson Nairn have worked with the RMBI for fifteen years and have been involved in a series of alterations, refurbishments and extensions.
This project at Devonshire Court, Leicester, was for the creation of an additional 8 no. en-suite bedrooms to the existing care home.
The extension was constructed above an existing single storey wing of the home which dictated the form of the extension. The circulation was carefully linked into the existing building to ensure a seamless flow from the existing into the new.
The materials and detailing of the extension were also carefully matched to the existing to ensure that the over-all form of the home retained unity.
Works were also carried out on the main entrance area, with a second extension constructed to improve access and circulation, and to create an over-all ore welcoming entrance feature.
