72 Bed Residential Care Home, Hinckley

During 2012 HSSP Architects began working with Magnum Care and Goodrich Consulting on a new Care Home in Hinckley, Leicestershire.  Following planning approval in September 2012 and a successful tender, Wynbrook Homes were successful in being awarded the construction contract and work started in May 2013. The site was once the home of an historic hosiery factory which was influential in the design of the building.  The principle elevation facing onto John Street uses traditional brickwork detailing to reflect the industrial language of the former factory. The building extends into the rear of the site and reduces in scale from four-storey to one, creating an alternative domestic vocabulary.
