Conversion of a couple of Victorian Semi Detached as a Rehab Centre
Bosco Society is a Charitable organisation which provides bed spaces to single homeless men, many of whom have substance misuse problems, mental health issues and have an offending background. The Charity had been operated from two adjacent buildings in Bootle for some years, but these were proving difficult to operate as they were essentially un-converted houses without any service driven modifications.
A successful application for a new capital investment fund to a national agency allowed the charity to invest over £ 1,000,000 on extension, alterations and refurbishment. We were commissioned by the Charity to refurbish the original Georgian mansions to modern standards and our initial proposals indicated that the buildings had to be completely re planned with new circulation and spaces to achieve the vision.
This project provides a range of supported and independent living spaces set over three floors with new lifts and stairs integrated into the heart of the building affording light and circulation. Alongside extensive rehabilitation, therapy spaces and staff facilities located in the rear extension the rear gardens have been transformed to provide essential therapy and relaxation areas.
