Bradbury Place, Andover

Bradbury Place is an 8 unit residential development that gives choice to disabled people who want to live independently. Designed and built for Enham Trust, Winton Court was completed in 2014.

The development is on the site of the former Winton Court and is a break with history for disability charity, Enham Trust. It is the Trust’s first housing development for disabled people outside of the village of Enham Alamein. The central location gives access to opportunities in the town centre such as employment, public transport and leisure facilitates.

The building has been designed with a brick storey at ground to first floor level to reflect the brick construction of the existing bungalows adjacent to the development. At first, second and roof levels the building is predominately clad in pre-weathered zinc, which is intended to ‘unify’ the massing of the four buildings that form the whole. The zinc has been detailed to offer a continuity of surface between each building and so give the sense that although within separated dwellings, the residents are sharing a single roof.
