Rayner Davies Architects have completed the refurbishment of Whitegates in Worksop on behalf of Autism East Midlands.
The £1million development on Sparken Hill has been created by the charity specifically to provide short-term accommodation. The service will run year-round to provide autistic individuals with specialist support, whilst providing their families and carers with a break.
The building has been carefully transformed to create six self-contained apartments, each with its own lounge area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. While staying there, individuals will also have access to a shared outdoor gym and to the extensive grounds that surround the house.
Originally built in 1898, Whitegates was a large villa designed by Flockton, Gibbs & Flockton of Sheffield for Arthur Staniforth Esq, a local stockbroker. The building has been thoroughly modernised with many of the original features retained and restored.
Vaughandale Construction of Mansfield undertook the work.
