ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2022

Project Detail

Wyggeston Hospital Hub and Cottages, Leicester

Large Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2022 Winner

Founded as an almshouse charity in 1513, Wyggeston Hospital has been providing sheltered housing, support and care for vulnerable older people in Leicester for more than 500 years.

A new administrative and entertainment Hub and additional housing were added to the existing extra-care accommodation whilst a newly landscaped scheme was provided for residents to enjoy.

To create a modern scheme in a traditional setting, external materials were carefully selected and past aesthetics were echoed in the new building styles.

Project Overview

The Hub provides a clear focal point to the site. Created for the residents to access its facilities and activities, it also contains a fully serviceable commercial kitchen and large patio to host fundraising or celebration events.

An attenuation pond has been placed at the heart of the site, as a focal resource for the residents, staff and wildlife.

The new ground floor of the Hub is now fully occupied, and the café is in daily use. All the new eight apartments and six cottages are occupied.
