This Housing LIN Case Study (no 149) was written by Damian Utton, Director of Pozzoni Architecture, the architects behind the Village 135 community and retirement living hub in Wythenshawe, Manchester.

Following an investment of £5.19m from the Department of Health, through the HCA Care (now Homes England) and Specialist Housing fund, Damian details how the needs of the ageing population in the local area have been addressed in the Village 135 development.

The scheme is built over two sites, featuring a glazed footbridge crossing a busy road that connects two existing, remodelled residential tower blocks. Developed by Wythenshawe Community Housing Group, the village boasts 135 apartments complete with 24-hour on-site Extra Care to support residents’ existing and ongoing needs.

Careful consideration in design including HAPPI principles amongst other acknowledgment to design guidelines.
