A State of the art development to further enhance their facilities.
The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) is a charity organisation offering a safe place for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children to play and to be at ease. Set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, their 17th century Farmhouse with surrounding 10 acres of land is the perfect place for deserving children of all abilities to play, laugh and simply enjoy being children.
This project was a joint effort between CAFT and Bowker Sadler Architects. CAFT are proposing to expand with an additional site to accompany their existing, offering state of the art facilities for their visitors.
The project kicked off with an initial site visit, giving our design team an opportunity to understand and align with the clients vision. This was then followed by various meetings to further understand their requirements which in this case was a series of visuals and animation flythrough to help all stakeholders visualise the proposed development.
What makes this project so unique is the facilities and activities it will bring to the area. The proposed building encompasses a mixture of materials, such as corten, eco-credential glazing and traditional brickwork to compliment the existing site.
The glazing gives an unique outlook on to the fields and provides plenty of natural light, having a positive effect on the children’s wellbeing.
The corten roof construction provides a fantastic aesthetic finish but also is low maintenance increasing the development’s longevity.
Ian Eccles, The Adventure Farm Trust – “It looks fantastic, and really brings it to life, a big thank you to everyone involved.”
Alan Sadler, Bowker Sadler Architects – “We are very grateful to you and the team for all the hard work you have put in to this and all other visuals”
