Stow on the Wold
A state of the art care environment, combining residential and specialist dementia facilities, designed to Stirling Gold standards
Edwardstow Court is one of eight care projects delivered for long term client, The Order of St John Care Trust, intelligently designed to enhance quality of life for those suffering with dementia.
Constructed using traditional methods, with striking architectural features, this three-story, 48-bedroom building is faced with locally sourced Cotswold stone, unique to its location inside the Cotswold Conservation Area. The roof is partly tiled in natural stone while also incorporating an environmentally-friendly living ‘green roof’ section made of sedum plants which absorb rainwater and provide a habitat for wildlife.
The £5.4m home is arranged in small, 8-bedroom ‘households’, each with a dedicated sitting room, kitchen and dining area. Highly specified bedrooms feature en-suite wet room showers and assisted bathrooms. Shared facilities include a café and tearoom, residents’ shopping and salon.
External areas combine safe, secure personal gardens and patio areas with landscaped communal gardens, designed to provide a range of recreational facilities.
The building’s internal layout was developed using our Stepcare design concept, enabling a far quicker procurement process and much improved programming from inception to handover.
