Chartered architects specialised in designing integrated retirement communities, care homes, villages and supported living accommodation

Carless + Adams is an independent, award winning Architectural practice that provides professional advice and services in architecture for integrated retirement communities, care homes, care villages and supported living accommodation. The passion that Carless + Adams has for the care industry sector is founded on their knowledge, research and understanding of the needs of the UK’s elderly population and retirement living demands.

Based in Berkshire, South East England Carless + Adams is a chartered architectural and construction consultancy working with care home operators and contractors across the UK who have identified appropriate areas to build or renovate an integrated retirement community, care home, care village or supported living accommodation property. Adapted living to cater for additional physical and mental needs is considered in the architectural designs, especially in the case of dedicated dementia care facilities.  Carless + Adams as architectural designers they work closely with interior designers and specialist elderly care equipment providers to make the care home residents lives the best that they can be.

Our architectural design process starts with establishing a design brief and analysing the site context. Once appointed, we develop project architectural design objectives and conduct a feasibility survey of the site When required we will attend formal pre-application meetings with the local authorities.  Design development occurs next when the chosen concept is developed, and a full design package is submitted to the local planning authority. Carless + Adams acts as an agent and liaises with the appointed planning officer to achieve the best possible outcome. Finally, we act as architect and lead designer within the project team to produce detailed technical and CAD architectural drawings and are fully immersed through the construction phase.



“We would recommend Carless + Adams to anyone seeking a knowledgeable care home architectural service providing help and advice at every stage in the process.”

“Calm and assured management of the entire process, leading us end to end, from initial concept through to a successful planning application. There is no substitute for expertise, gained through depth of experience, combined with great design.”
