We extended and adapted existing buildings to provide a modern multi-purpose resource centre for individuals who have experience a spinal cord injury.
Our client, Spinal Injuries Scotland, wanted to use this development to showcase a fresh approach to retrofitting an existing property into a fully accessible home using a more design-driven approach.
Typically, projects of this nature veer towards the institutional and clinical but our design showed guests that a fully accessible adapted domestic environment need not sacrifice style for practicality. Wheelchair accessible car parking was provided and the rear garden was made fully accessible, with raised planters.
The curved entrance porch has a “green roof”, reflecting local biodiversity and character while contributing to climate-change mitigation.
