Gaunt Francis Architects were commissioned by Octopus Real Estate, part of the Octopus Group and leading UK specialist real estate investor, to prepare designs for the new care home that will form a key part of the new Blythe Valley Park – an established 2 million square feet mixed development, strategically located in the heart of the UK, surrounded by stunning parkland and leisure facilities.

Gaunt Francis Architects designed the care home to complement the joint vision of providing a high quality, well-designed care home that is both deliverable and functional.

The 1.4-acre site is to be transformed into an 80-bed care home and will feature a café with terrace at the main entrance, which will provide an amenity close to the new Marl Pool recreation area, lounge and dining areas, garden rooms, greenhouses, and activity rooms for residents.
