New Lodge provides extra care housing, a care home and vibrant new community facilities in the centre of New Earswick Garden Village, York. The project for Joseph Rowntree delivers purpose-built housing for older residents from the surrounding village to right-size in their later years, freeing up family housing for the next generation. In this way, younger families can rebalance the demographics of the village and bring back the once vibrant sense of community.

As part of the project, the Grade II-listed Folk Hall was extensively refurbished. It now provides a focus for intergenerational activities, where people of all ages can come together and enjoy a safe, social and inclusive environment.

The new housing is arranged in smaller courtyards and reflects the arts and crafts style of the listed Folk Hall and surrounding housing. Beautifully landscaped community open space includes lawns, allotments and a public square.
