Willow Barns comprises 75 two-bed apartments and is one of three extra care developments delivered as part of the Stoke-on Trent extra care PFI programme.

The design of the scheme carefully responds to the retained barn buildings, the surrounding residential neighbourhood and the significant change in level across the site.

The architecture which takes particular reference from the retained agricultural buildings, creates three linear barn structures all linked by glazed bridges, each ‘barn’ has a southerly aspect and overlooks a series of high quality landscaped spaces. The link bridges are a visually stimulating part of the circulation routes flooded with natural light and offering extended views over the scheme and surrounding area.
