The Anchor Housing retirement village concept focuses on the provision of independent dwellings with domiciliary care tailored to suit the needs of the individual. The village centre is a hub for the provision of care as well as being a social and recreational centre for the residents.

Anchor decided in 2010 to hold a competition for the design of a model village centre and sent out a complex, challenging brief to a number of architectural practices. Shown here is the competition winning scheme designed by Richard and his team.
