14 new retirement apartments – each with individual character – have been created on this sloping site in Tavistock centre. All the apartments are accessible with large access corridors and lift access to all floors. The interior design is modern and of high quality with the external design more reflective of the adjacent listed buildings – a product of the negotiations with the planning authority – West Devon Borough Council.
Designed in association with Crookes & Spackman Architects, this scheme provides much needed homes on a difficult site. The design successfully integrates into the existing townscape and maximised the value for the developer, whilst being mindful of its setting within the historic townscape.
