This Housing LIN case study shines the spotlight on the award-winning
St. John’s Almshouses, a new Passivhaus certified residential scheme
for older people in Lichfield, completed in August 2017.
The client, St. John’s Hospital, are a charitable trust and historic
almshouses organisation which has had a presence on the site since 1129.
The existing Grade I listed buildings date from 1495 and the new 21st
century development comprises 18 new flats contained within two separate
buildings, which are arranged around a new landscaped courtyard.
The design won this year’s Architect’s Journal Housing Project of the Year (up to £10 million).
