Beechwood Grove Shortlisted for Inside Housing Awards
It is fantastic to see Beechwood Grove has been shortlisted by a panel of expert judges for Inside Housing’s Best Older People’s Housing Development Award. Beechwood Grove is a collection of 43 one and two bedroom apartments designed to offer independent living for over 55’s in tranquil surroundings. Archadia worked closely with A2 Dominion and Feltham Construction to deliver the project which offers hotel-style amenities that make life easier and more enjoyable.
“This year, entries increased by a third, and the judges were overwhelmed with the quality of entries, reflective of the fantastic work which women are doing across the housing sector.” Inside Housing Development Awards
At the heart of the community of Beechwood Grove is a stylish lounge – a place to connect with other residents and guests. There are a number of other communal facilities including a bistro and library. Apartments are designed to the highest standards to match the lifestyle choice of prospective residents, with the added benefit of access to personalised on-site care should this be required. Central to community life at Beechwood Grove are the landscaped gardens. Set among mature trees, these are idyllic spots to relax and are also where our popular lawn bowls take place.
The scheme, designed in close collaboration with the Local Planning Authority, blends in with and complements local context and character with a subtle contemporary twist. The materials are chosen to harmonise with those used in the surrounding vicinity. We have ensured we retain the majority of the mature trees on-site and the project is designed to BREEAM ‘Very Good’ energy standards.
We look forward to seeing the results at the Inside Housing Development Awards which will take place on Wednesday 27 October. We wish everyone who has been nominated good luck and are sure the event will be a fantastic evening to celebrate the very best in housing development.
