Rowcroft Hospice, Ella’s Gardens


Entrant's Summary: Located on a challenging hilltop site, the redevelopment of Rowcroft’s 23 acre site in Torquay will provide an exemplary, intergenerational continuing care community which will extend and improve Rowcroft’s exceptional care offer for South Devon. The proposal will add to Rowcroft’s existing hospice to deliver a world class in-patient hospice, out-patient services, staff training, a 60 bed dementia care home, children’s nursery, 40 assisted living apartments, guest lodges, beautiful landscape and horticulture. The masterplan is landscape led with a central village green and routes which provide clear visual connections, celebrating two retained properties and extending their setting.
