Planning consent granted at the Green, Solihull

As part of the wider development of the ‘Green’ adjacent to the A34 Stratford Road, the latest residential care home scheme for Restful Homes Group has been approved by SMBC. It will deliver 86 care bedrooms in a T shaped form that sits within a master plan developed by M7 Real Estate, to the high standards achieved across all the RHG sites.

The four storey, contemporary form is articulated with a variety of materials to create a varied frontage on this key route into Birmingham.  Open space for residents is provided around the perimeter of the site as well as at roof level within the established landscape of the site.

Since completion of Homewood in Leamington in 2009 for Methodist Homes for the Aged and Earlplace this sector has grown into an important specialist area for the practice. The challenge of designing attractive residential and social space for the elderly and catering for those with various forms dementia, has played to our strengths, including careful design and attention to detail.
