Sutherlands Care Home

Case study for care home

Sutherlands Care Home – Designed as a 47 bed residential and Nursing Care home for dementia, intermediate and long term care of the elderly and including patients recuperating from orthopaedic and other hospital procedures. Site constraints included size (site originally occupied by one dwelling), fixed central access across a culverted ditch, all of which dictated the physical layout of the building on the site.

The client, East Anglia Care Homes had a precise brief – that the entire facility should be as spacious and communally inclusive as possible, offering independence, comfort and a family atmosphere.
