France + Associates were appointed by Switalskis Solicitors to design and manage the refurbishment and extension of a large property in Dore, Sheffield, on behalf of a wheelchair user and their family.
The property once complete will feature a curved, ramped footbridge to accommodate differences in floor level to the upper storey, knitting together the variety of extensions that have been built over the building’s lifetime with differing floor levels.
An enclosed through floor lift, hydrotherapy pool and full adaptation will also take place to meet the inclusive design specification.
This week the steel frame was successfully erected, allowing the extension building to take shape. More updates to follow.
