Based in Wanstead, London, the Chestnuts care home project involves the Re-development of the care home, whilst maintaining the front facade of the original building, due to the previous home becoming unsuitable for the complex needs of its residents. The new purpose built 60 bed facility is due for completion early 2021. It has been designed to meet the comfort needs of the residents with each of the bedrooms to feature en-suite wet-rooms. There will also be many social areas, intended for entertainment purposes, these shall include; communal areas, cinema room, hair salon, conservatory, external courtyard and many other areas, all of which are easily accessible due to the design including larger corridors allowing residents to navigate throughout the premises.
