Project Detail

The Ashton, John Street, Hinckley

Large Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2014 Finalist

The Ashton, John Street, Hinckley is a 72 bed nursing home providing residential, nursing and dementia care for the elderly.

On the site of a former hosiery factory, The Ashton reflects the history of the site with local history incorporated by the use of local historical hosiery company names.

The scheme is constructed from traditional materials that are sympathetic to the surrounding area with a more modern twist, created by the use of grey windows and white render.

Project Overview

Finishes and colour are used to help residents, with the dementia floor colour coded to enable recognition.

Nursing facilities include nurse stations on each floor, consulting rooms, clinics and sluices which enable access to medication and patient records on site. Extra care was taken when incorporating these into the home in order to create a domestic feel to the environment.

All bedrooms have en-suite showers to retain a level of independence for their residents, while the less able can use the assisted bathing facilities on every floor.

The interior design complements the overall scheme, with a fit and quality on a par with a four star hotel. The home includes a hair salon, consultation suite, multi-use lounges, dining areas and lifts servicing all floors.
