Charlie Ratchford Court provides 38 extra care apartments and communal activity spaces, designed to create a hub for the local community.

Above ground floor are 38 one- and two-bed self-contained apartments with a majority accessed from an open deck, which allows the dual aspect benefits of natural light and cross ventilation.

The combination of high-quality design and carefully chosen materials has resulted in a six-storey building that is contemporary, respectful of its historic context and in keeping with local housing typologies. Its brick elevations in the Camden vernacular, respond sensitively to the Victorian housing surrounding the site and in particular the adjacent terrace of houses which are locally listed.
