OWLA were presented with an award by the Royal Tunbridge Wells Civic Society in October for their residential care extension at Mount Ephraim House in Kent.
The project renovates an existing building dating to c.1840 and provides an additional 35 resident rooms and associated facilities over three floors in a new build wing that includes a terrace overlooking the common. It employs a bespoke cladding system and curtain walling to create a contemporary façade that stylistically draws on the quirky nature of the original. The new facility incorporates CHP plant and a MHVR system. See project pages for details.
