Built around a Grade II-listed former manor house, Manor Gardens is a unique intergenerational housing development in Barnwood, Gloucester.
The scheme has refurbished 23 bungalows and will redevelop sheltered and family homes, to deliver 76 new accessible dwellings, set in beautiful landscaped gardens, with shared areas for socialising. The inclusive development will provide exemplar accommodation for families, young adults and older people, many of which have mental ill-health or a disability.
A variety of dwelling types including apartments, houses and bungalows create the opportunity for people of all ages and needs to live together. The design responds to Barnwood Trust's concept of 'Building Belonging' and aspires to create an outward looking, welcoming neighbourhood that encourages interaction between existing residents, new residents and the wider community.
