The Chocolate Quarter Retirement Village case study
Product: 2 bespoke Spaceshade timber rooftop shelters
Location: Keynsham, nr Bristol
Specifier: PlantCare Ltd
‘The Chocolate Quarter is regeneration at its finest. Expertly blending a taste of the past with modern living, everything here has been crafted to create the perfect place to live.’
The iconic Fry’s Chocolate Factory buildings in Keynsham have been redeveloped into The Chocolate Quarter, a luxury retirement village run by St Monica’s Trust.
Kensington worked with Plantcare Ltd’s landscaping team to install 2 bespoke timber shelters in the stunning rooftop gardens. The aim was to create a sheltered and comfortable place for residents to relax and linger amongst the greenery.
One of the shelters incorporates a wall and Perspex ‘window’, providing a windbreak and evoking the feeling of a summerhouse. The other is open. Both create comfortable shaded areas for residents to enjoy.
Constructed of high quality treated timber with slate effect roof tiles the shelters create a rustic, cozy atmosphere in the gardens. The shelters are securely fixed with steel posts bolted underneath the tiles.
