Surrounded by seven conservation areas, Belle Vue is a retirement community set in landscaped courts and gardens, with communal and neighbourhood facilities, health spa, gym, pool, resident’s lounge and a public café. Four interconnected buildings in clay brickwork and stone address the local heritage and scale. Inset corner balconies break down mass and offer privacy. As the building rises from a richly textured base, chamfers around windows widen to draw light into and across the facade. Filigree metal balustrades and a thin band of precast concrete at each level unifies the composition and complements nearby buildings. This is a design of generous spaces that older people can enjoy either privately or communally.
