HSSP Architects was commissioned to reconfigure the internal layouts of a proposed new care home to meet the wellbeing needs of the residents, staff and community within a mixed use urban expansion.


  • Location: Biggleswade 
  • Sector: Healthcare and Care Homes 
  • Client: Biggleswade Care Home Development Limited 

Interior architecture for 65-bed en-suite care home located in community setting.

Project - Penrose Care Home


The footprint had already been approved by local planning officers, requiring creative thinking to utilise the space to its full potential.

Good care home design meets and exceeds the wellbeing needs of residents and staff whilst providing good value for owners, operators and developers 


Working within the boundaries of planning, we reconfigured the entire space to align and balance the operational demands of a care home with the wellbeing and safety needs of its residents and staff. We included homely break out spaces, quiet areas and spaces for community activities such as a cinema space, hairdressers, a ground floor café open to the local community, and a celebration room for families and friends to enjoy special times.  

Within our design we added a further five bedrooms, and a dedicated ground floor wing for staff and their ancillary activities; a large fully equipped catering kitchen, large laundry, multiple stores, offices and a spacious staff room that enjoys views out onto the communal square.
