Lytle Associates Architects helped the Geoghegan Group build a luxury a 32 bed Post Operative Rehabilitation Care Home and Treatment Centre with state of the art facilities including a therapy pool with a raising floor and an underwater treadmill.
Our client was looking to expand their care home facilities in the Surrey area and entrusted Lytle Associates Architects to deliver a new build solution within the centre of Guildford
Located on the site of the original Clavadel Hotel, Lytle Associates Architects obtained planning permission within a conservation area to demolish the existing hotel and build, in the original style of the Clavadel, a new Post-Operative Rehabilitation Care Home.
Following success at the planning stage, Lytle Associates Architects continued as Lead Consultant in the design and construction stages of the project. The client wanted to have an individual and purpose-built care home, which met all their necessary rehabilitation needs but with the relaxing environment and quality of a country club hotel. This led to the design, with 32 en-suite bedrooms, a rooftop conservatory with terrace, communal facilities including residents’ lounges and an extensive storage and staff area in the basement. The building also provides a separate Rehabilitation Centre for hydrotherapy and physiotherapy treatment incorporating individual consultancy rooms and a cutting-edge therapy pool which includes a rising floor and an underwater treadmill.
