Danbury Medical Centre

Danbury, a village to the east of Chelmsford, has a doctors’ surgery which operates from an old building much extended and modified, and a collection of temporary buildings.  The GPs are desperately in need of new premises to meet future demands and to comply with current NHS standards.

The Green adjacent to The Danbury Mission was selected from three sites identified as possible locations for the new surgery, by means of a community participation exercise involving Danbury Parish Council.

Danbury Medical Centre was designed in collaboration with the Parish Council and Planning Authority, the proposed new facility incorporates not only the GPs’ accommodation but also space for additional clinics and a pharmacy.

Broomfield Grange

We were excited to be given the creative freedom to produce an innovative and stylish interior for Broomfield Grange, which would then be rolled out as part of European Care’s new corporate identity in their existing stock of care homes. We took inspiration from city hotels to create a modern and stimulating design, which would allow the residents to interact in a lively hub formed at the heart of every home.

As a starting point, taking influence from the client’s logo, we produced a sophisticated and rich colour scheme, to be instantly recognisable as a European Care Home and created warmth with the use of a variety of textured wall coverings, sculptural timber panels and long pile carpets on feature walls.

All the while keeping the needs of dementia patients at the forefront of our design, we continued the use of some of the textures through other parts of Broomfield Grange, giving each wing an individual colour theme as a means of wayfinding and to aid in spatial recognition and memory jogging.

Continuing the 'hotel like' feel into the communal lounges and bedrooms, we created a selection of smart and interesting spaces, using rich colours and luxurious fabrics, all of which tied in with the overall scheme.

The end result was a beautifully stylish interior, which expressed the client’s personality and corporate identity, as well as being a comfortable and engaging Home for its residents to enjoy.

Broomfield Hospital

Following confirmation of Preferred Bidder Status, The Tooley & Foster Partnership were commissioned by Swan Housing to undertake the design of this Public-Private Partnership project for Mid-Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust.

The residential accommodation consists of a total of 302 units, made up of 2 & 3-bedroom houses and 1 & 4-bedroom flats. The shared accommodation provides en-suite facilities for each bedroom, with communal kitchen, dining and living space for up to four occupants.

The main 3 and 4-storey buildings are designed to have open views across the adjacent countryside and each encloses a landscaped courtyard.  Low-key paved parking areas are included within the courtyards, and footpaths are threaded between the buildings to encourage pedestrian and cyclist movements.  The new houses are designed in a traditional style where located around the existing cluster of post-war houses, and elsewhere they are designed to act as a visual transition between this group and the contemporary main development.

The scheme was designed according to the British Medical Association’s standards.
