Housing21 in conjunction with North Yorkshire County Council and Engie developed this scheme on a difficult, sloping site in the market town of High Bentham.
The scheme comprised 64 apartments providing a mix of both 1 and 2 bedroomed apartments, along with 8 bungalows. The development comprised a series of bungalows leading into the site with the main Extra Care building sitting in the centre of the site. The building incorporated a stepped floor plan in order to accommodate the steeply sloping site. Many of the mature trees around the site were retained enabling the building to blend into it’s surroundings. All communal facilities were located on the lower floor level with a circulation zone providing access to the upper floors via lifts and stairwell
