RIBA Accredited Architects based in Berkshire

Architectural designers in Berkshire specialising in retirement living

Experienced and knowledgeable niche care industry Chartered Architects based in Slough

Carless + Adams has a passionate belief that focussing its architectural design skills to create high quality support living accommodation in the UK, can help residents and carers to live their best possible lives. As a Royal Institute of British Architects member (RIBA) Carless + Adams has demonstrated its expertise in the architectural design field specialising in retirement living accommodation design. Healthcare design requires specialised knowledge to understand the needs of the elderly and encourage intergenerational living.

As architects specialising in the design of integrated retirement communities, care homes, care villages and adapted living Carless + Adams has built our knowledge and reputation from over 60 years in the care industry sector. Based in Slough, our contractors and care home operator clients are based around the whole of the UK and benefit from our architectural design experience in BREEAM and sustainable building design techniques. Making care a choice is a driving factor in our quality designs through our understanding in the changing face of the UK retirement living accommodation choices.

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 architectural drawings and are fully immersed through the construction phase.

“Carless + Adams is passionate about what they do, highly organised and provided impressive designs. The work was well led and implemented. You have a happy client, well done.”

“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.”

“We appreciated all the work that Carless + Adams did in creating an environment everyone wants to live in and maximising the use of functional space while incorporating changes and ensuring buildability. Residents, families and staff are very complementary about the scheme which looks great and meets everyone’s requirements very well.”
