Honeypot Lane, Brent


This extra care housing scheme provides 61 independent flats for older people as well as associated staff facilities and communal areas. It forms a significant part of Brent Council's programme to deliver new choices for older people with higher care and support needs.

Flats are larger than required by the London Plan in order to incorporate HAPPI design principles,including additional storage space, direct access between the bedroom and bathroom, and a flexible layout. This flexibility, along with built-in provision for healthcare technology, will allow residents to stay in their homes for longer, even if mobility or health declines. All flats will have a private balcony or terrace. Seating with planters on the open access galleries will create opportunities for socialising with neighbours to foster a sense of community. The rear landscaped courtyard will also offer an oasis of calm to residents.
