Hutton View

Award winning redevelopment of a brownfield site, providing a 77-bed care home and 55 assisted living apartments.

The preservation and incorporation of the existing treescape was crucial to our approach at Hutton View. On arrival trees are used to shield views of the surface car park and we carefully subdivided areas using existing trees to create intimate gardens spaces for residents. Additionally new trees were planted in the central court-yard and around it’s approach through a Wisteria arch.

We have designed a scheme that respects the scale and character of surrounding properties and enhances the streetscape. Both buildings draw on the traditional principles of symmetry and proportion reflected in the Georgian style of architecture prominent in the local building typologies, and reflective of the buildings prominence.

Hutton View is the newest addition to the Hallmark Care Homes family. Opened in October 2020 it provides a variety of accommodation types and forms of tenure, addressing a local need for high quality care for the elderly including dementia care.

Site Analysis

The site layout was led by arboriculture considerations for existing trees and how new trees could be integrated to enhance external spaces. Much like our approach to building design, we considered every tree on the site; considering what it brought to the space it occupied and how it could contribute to residents emotional wellbeing.
