Sebastian Loyn, Planning and Development Director, YTL Developments said:
“The changing needs of our ageing society mean that there is increasing demand for specialist housing and care. These homes are designed to enable residents to be more active, more social and more independent in their retirement years. These new properties are part of our commitment to making Brabazon a diverse and inclusive community where young and old alike will love to live.“
Rachel Sayers, Partner at FCB Studios said:
“The driving aspiration behind our design for the later living properties at Brabazon was to bring the whole community together, creating homes that are both practical and a pleasure to live in.
“This landscape-led proposal features mansion blocks arranged around a central, communal garden and is designed to sit within a wider context of new parks and green spaces that are a feature of the new neighbourhood at Brabazon.
The proposal has communal facilities - a restaurant, and wellbeing suite - that strike a balance between fostering a community and facilitating independent living, while the sustainability principles baked into the design should reduce energy minimising running costs for those on a defined income, as well as helping to address the climate crisis.”
