Springfields Independent Living in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, is considered to be the epitome of design for resident health, wellbeing and comfort – according to client emh group and local authority, North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC), which have labelled it as their flagship scheme.
Situated in the beautiful rural surroundings of the National Forest, the state-of-the-art £12.5m development is the largest supported living complex ever commissioned by the client. It is home to 65 high-specification one- and two-bedroom apartments, spread over a site that’s just under 6,000sq m. The building’s eye-catching grand timber collonnade is a nod to its surroundings, with high quality materials and detailing.
Completed in September 2021, what makes the project special is how it uniquely interacts with the local community. The ground floor has been designed to allow Springfields residents and the general public to share its impressive café and bistro, beauty salon and hairdressers, communal gardens and hirable room space, with its road-facing layout provides an inviting space for passers-by. It is also home to a large private residents’ lounge and wide apartment balconies with seating areas, providing the best of both worlds and a heightened sense of wellbeing for its residents.
