The charity, Jewish Blind and Disabled, approached Moxley Architects to review an existing proposal for an extension to their assisted living apartment development, Cecil Rosen Court. The proposed scheme had received adverse comments from the local authority planning officers. JBD chose Moxley Architects, because of their strong track record of dealing with listed buildings and conservation areas, to advise on how the scheme should be developed. The scheme was substantially revised following lengthy discussions with the client and planning officers and just 4 weeks after being commissioned the new planning application was submitted for approval. Not only did the new scheme receive support from the planning officers, but the client gained an additional 10% floor area to provide 19 assisted living apartments.
The new building is an extension to the existing facility, Cecil Rosen Court, connected via a glazed link structure at ground level. The construction team had the challenge of constructing the new building whilst ensuring that the health and safety of the residents of the adjoining facility was not compromised. The new wing is now known as The Dyna and Fala Weinstock Wing.
