Wyllie Court is an redevelopment of an existing 1960s home for the elderly into a 51-bed Extra Care scheme consists of 1 and 2-bed self-contained apartments with assisted bathrooms and communal facilities in a building which will represent the upper end of future Extra Care living in Sittingbourne.
This high quality scheme includes a lounge, hair dressing salon, activity rooms, guest room, Wi-Fi and a reception area accessed from the large central hub, which allows residents and families to enter from both sides of the building. This welcoming centre leads into the café, which is open to all.
The external courtyards provide opportunities for residents to relax and have been designed to incorporate raised planting beds so that residents can enjoy and take part in the planting and landscaping.
The elevational treatment has responded to its location and the building’s scale with a mix of brickwork and through-colour render which matches the prevailing character of the area. The scale of the building has been fragmented by the careful use of materials and the articulation of the roof areas.
