The Heritage, Chichester

Chichester, West Sussex

Situated close to the historical heart of Chichester, this brownfield infill site presented an opportunity to create a model for the integration of Extra Care housing within a mixed tenure environment whilst repairing the fractured urban fabric. Buildings form courtyards with a clear public and private realm, promoting a townscape that is inspiring and beautiful yet functional and safe.

Apartments and communal facilities for elderly residents are focused around a cloistered garden; creating a sense of security and familiarity whilst referencing the rich heritage of Chichester Cathedral in a contemporary manner.
