The Jewish Blind and Disabled Charity (JBD), approached Moxley Architects to review an existing planning proposal that had received adverse comments from the local planning authority. The proposal was for an extension to their assisted living development at Cecil Rosen Court. JBD selected Moxley Architects for their strong track record for dealing with listed buildings and conservation areas and to also advise on how the scheme could be developed further.
The original scheme was substantially revised following lengthy discussions with the client and planning officers and just four weeks after being commissioned, a new planning application was submitted for determination. The new scheme receive support from planning officers but also gained an additional 10% floor area to provide 19 assisted living apartments. The new building is an extension to the existing facility and is connected via a glazed link at ground level.
The construction team had the challenge of building the new facility whilst ensuring that the health and safety of the residents of the adjoining facility was not compromised. The new wing is now known as The Dyna and Fala Weinstock Wing.
