Willingdon Park Manor, Eastbourne 

Architecture // Urban Design // Interior Design

At Scene Architects, we took on the lead consultant and principal designer roles for the Willingdon Park Manor project, supporting the principal contractor every step of the way. From addressing site queries to ensuring compliance with UK building regulations and CQC standards, we handled a variety of tasks. Our duties included providing drawing assistance, coordinating consultant information, and ensuring adherence to CDM 2015 legislation.

Additionally, we meticulously produced record drawings, prepared the health and safety file for handover, and assisted in creating operation and maintenance manuals. Crafting a detailed maintenance strategy and access statement was also part of our remit.

Willingdon Park Manor stands as a symbol of modern, compassionate care, situated within a previously developed residential area rich with local history. Rising four stories high, this new build care home offers 85 ensuite bedrooms and suites, complemented by an array of community and respite-centric amenity spaces.

Designed to cater to diverse needs, the home features specialised resident support and servicing ancillaries, along with fully accessible landscaped gardens. Residents can select from a range of suites, each furnished with private living spaces, kitchenettes, and outdoor terraces, promoting independent living within a supportive community environment.

For those in need of residential, nursing, or dementia care, the home provides thoughtfully designed en-suite wet-room bedrooms. The first floor houses a specialist dementia care unit, offering secure external garden terraces and engaging amenity spaces crafted to stimulate physical and mental engagement.

Inside, residents can enjoy a variety of amenities, including a hair salon, therapy and treatment rooms, a cinema, activity rooms, garden retreats, and a sensory oasis. The home also features an inviting café and celebration room, designed to accommodate family visits, parties, and larger community events.

Willingdon Park Manor is more than just a care facility; it’s a vibrant, inclusive community designed to empower residents while prioritising their safety and well-being.
