Home (South) commissioned RBA Architects to undertake the scheme design for a competition bid on the site of a former elderly persons home at Weekes Drive, Slough. The successful entry for a mixture of houses and apartments was chosen on a combination of the distinctive curved design with its butterfly roof and the high, but realistic, densities.
The scheme required careful planning and a major outcome negotiated during local consultations was the off-site reprovision of a community room. This allowed an important facility for the local elderly community to be retained as part of the development.
