Penoyre & Prasad has designed 78 Extra Care homes and 45 apartments and houses across two sites as part of the wider ‘Building Better Lives Integrated Care Community’ in Bridport. The contemporary designs will fit well into historic Bridport, relating to the surroundings and picking up on local characteristics of scale, roofs and materials. Together with a care home, the housing will create an integrated care community, ensuring that accommodation meets the changing needs of residents over time.

Greg Penoyre said: “We are delighted to have been successful with this scheme. It will bring much needed high-quality housing and elderly living to the community of Bridport. Our modern and sustainable design will provide a welcoming and decent place to live for local people, genuinely integrated with the historic town of Bridport”.

The scheme was part of BICL’s successful bid to Dorset Council led by Morgan Ashley with East Boro Housing.

Laurence Basturkmen, Managing Director of Morgan Ashley said: “The next steps will be public consultation and planning applications, before starting on site. We will be working with the local community, East Boro Housing Trust and Dorset Council to realise what is an innovative scheme, joining health, housing and care together in one location, to facilitate better outcomes for all.”
