Housing association First Ark’s first extra care development was designed by PRP to deliver 101 new homes for affordable rent, including seven apartments for dementia sufferers alongside 21 shared-ownership apartments plus a restaurant, lounge areas, hairdressing salon and activity rooms.

This contemporary building has been sensitively integrated into its wider surroundings with the two blocks enclosing a new public square as well as generous landscaped gardens, providing effective privacy for residents.
