Freeman's Quay sits within Wichelstowe District Centre, providing contemporary, retirement living for older people at the heart of a new intergenerational community. The proposals comprise 185 no. one, two and three bedroom apartments across two sites of varying scale; the larger overlooking the newly extended canal and the smaller adjacent to a new primary school.

Closely aligned with the recommendations in the HAPPI report, PRP’s design delivers stunning retirement living accommodation, integrating within its surroundings by reinforcing existing wider connections and creating new ones. The extensive clubhouse amenities compliment those within the district centre whilst promoting a healthy lifestyle for residents.

The hierarchy of forms, layout and brick detailing draw inspiration from the historic Brunel railway village in the heart of nearby Swindon.
