Shackletons Deliver For First Extra Care Environment

Sussex based healthcare interior design company, HomeSmiths, partnered with Shackletons to create the first extra care environment from West Kent Housing Association. 

Called Montgomery Court, the facility offers 62 one and two bedroom apartments for people aged 55 and over who are looking for independent living with access to 24 hour care and support should the need arise.

Under the guidance of HomeSmiths, Shackletons designed and manufactured the furniture for the site’s communal areas. Intimate seating zones were created on each floor to offer a comfortable space for reading, the lounge was fully furnished with a mix of sofa and chair styles; complemented by occasional furniture, and a sophisticated restaurant was furnished to offer the ultimate in high quality dining.

Jacqui Smith, Director at HomeSmiths says: “West Kent Housing Assocation had a very specific brief and that was to develop and provide a thoughtful scheme that consisted of high quality fixtures and fittings. Shackletons really understood this and worked with us to a very tight specification to achieve a very positive result.”

Shackletons have been in the business of creating comfort for over 50 years and are the UK’s leading provider of specialist care furniture which is still manufactured by craftsmen in Yorkshire.
