James House Assisted Living Complex

Making Space

Design and build of 14 new supported living apartments for Making Space. Accommodation includes one and two bedrooms as well as a two bedroom accessible apartment to create a safe and secure environment for vulnerable people who are able to live independently with the required support.

The town centre apartments are designed to make the most of the natural daylight and connect with the courtyard. There is a single entrance through to the lobby with communal and staff facilities either side. The entrance is clearly visible from James Street and is highlighted by an entrance canopy and a change in material.

Achieving the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3, a fabric first approach was employed meaning the building is well-insulated and the heating system very efficient.

James House will provide accommodation for adults with support and care needs, including older adults with age-related concerns and those living with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and dementia.

The environmentally-friendly complex is funded by Making Space who is a national charity and leading provider of adult health and social care services covering a diverse range of needs including mental health conditions, learning disabilities and dementia. With over 35 years of helping adults, Making Space provide services in the heart of local communities, in the comfort of people’s own homes and offer specialist care and support services.
