Project Description

Name – L’Hermitage Retirement Village
Client – Dandara Jersey Ltd.
Location – St. Peter, Jersey

L’Hermitage Gardens is the first fully integrated retirement and care community in the Channel Islands. The development comprises a variety of residential accommodation, ranging from terraced cottages designed for independent living, to sheltered apartments for those requiring higher levels of assisted living.

All units are designed to Lifetime Homes standards to enable accessibility and adaptation. The development includes a series of shared facilities for residents, including a village hall, winter garden and resident’s lounge, all arranged around a series of themed landscape gardens.

An adjacent residential care home and a specialist dementia care unit complete the development, allowing residents to remain within the community as their needs adapt.

The contemporary yet restrained architecture responds to the surrounding suburban context, with extensive balconies and external terraces taking advantage of the landscape setting and coastal views to the south.
