Sector: Living
Value: £18M
Location: Ilford
Status: In Progress
Internal Team: Emma Tanti

The scheme encompasses the redevelopment of Sinclair House which was formerly Jewish Care’s community centre, into the provision of a new, modern 66-bed care home, community centre and dementia day centre. The design proposals also include new external amenity space, gardens, parking and ancillary accommodation. Also included within the design is a new residential housing development of eight individual private dwellings to the southern side of the site.

Currently at RIBA Stage 4, the new building has been designed to be a modern and vibrant and scheme to support and enhance the standard of care and quality of life of the residents, along with the wider Jewish community. The client brief was to also create a higher capacity building to better cater for the growing number of older residents in the local population.

The scheme will also include up-to-date staff spaces, plant and ancillary accommodation, such as a catering kitchen and a large laundry, and be purpose built for the Jewish community it serves. This will include important provisions for practicing Judaism within and around the site, such as a Sukkah within the grounds. It is essential to note that the new proposal will provide accommodation and care to residents who will be living with a variety of care needs.
