Retirement Housing Development by Geirsson Design Ltd.

GEIRSSON DESIGN LTD. is an architectural practice based in the New Forest town of Lymington in Hampshire.  The practice carries out projects in the residential, retirement, commercial and education sectors in the south of England.




Retirement Living development for McCarthy & Stone located near the centre of Truro in Cornwall, consisting of 45 apartments over four levels.  The steeply sloping site called for a pedestrian access to be located at the bottom of the hill, giving access to the lower ground floor terrace. The design of the development responds both to the Victorian villas to the east and the larger adjacent buildings to the west at the peripheral of the city centre.

The industrial building designed for Plot G3 on Ampress Business Park has a total floor area of 960m².  The site is located within Flood Zone 2 & 3 along the Lymington River, hence it was necessary to lift the whole building off the ground to allow flood water to run underneath the building, which made the scheme viable in terms of flood water alleviation.  The building was designed so it could be let either as single unit, or up to four separate smaller units.

The proposal for the this Grade II listed building comprised of the subdivision of the upper floors in the principal building into 2 self-contained apartments and re-separation of the two storey rear building to form an independent dwelling.  The design proposals respect the building's listed status and its location within the Lymington Conservation Area, as well as enhancing the original character of the building and the street scene in general.
