Carlton Dene, Westminster


Carlton Dene, Westminster City Council’s new flagship extra care scheme, comprises 65 extra care and 22 general needs homes. The scheme sits adjacent to St Augustine’s, a Grade I listed church. We are addressing an ambitious sustainability brief with both blocks targeting a more affordable AECB energy standard having been adjusted down from Passivhaus.

Many of the extra care homes are one-bed-plus, with flexible partitions that provide different layout configurations based on residents' requirements to enable them to age in place. All homes are dual aspect. Shared communal balconies overlooking the generous courtyard and roof terrace spaces provide additional shared spaces outside front doors, in line with HAPPI principles.
