Anne-Marie Nicholson



Anne-Marie is a leading specialist in the field of design for older people and those with special needs. She oversees PRP's Surrey studio, where the team of designers focus on the later living and care sector. Her own expertise has been gathered over some twenty years, during which time she has designed and researched environments that support and enable those with impairments to lead more independent lives.

Her particular areas of interest and experience include extra care sheltered housing, care homes, designs for people with dementia, retirement villages, assisted living, housing and day care for people with learning disabilities and environments for blind and partially sighted young people with complex needs.

Anne-Marie has written a number of recognised design guides on designing for older people and has recently been asked to update a number of these to bring them in line with current thinking and changes in standards and legislation.
