Oak Court is the first Extra Care facility created by the East Midlands housing association emh homes.
The affordable housing development numbers 50 dementia-friendly units of one and two bedroom apartments with communal amenity spaces across three storeys.
The design integrates with the two storey dwellings in the surrounding masterplan and an existing 1970s residential development north of the site.
Oak Court secured a BREEAM rating of Good and provides apartments that meet the principles of Lifetime Homes.
Oak Court is within a larger mixed tenure affordable housing development, providing homes for young couples and families plus ‘close care’ bungalows for older people with care needs.
emh homes, the County Council and the NHS are also piloting a re-ablement service at Oak Court for older people leaving hospital to assess when and if they can return home or whether adaptations and therapies are required.
Oak Court’s design process adopted the HAPPI principles of: space and flexibility; daylight; balconies and outdoor spaces; ‘care ready’ adaptability; positive use of circulation space; shared hubs; plants and trees; energy efficiency; storage; and external shared services.
On a prominent position on a principal route in and out of Blaby, Oak Court achieves the client’s objective of providing a landmark building.
