A beautiful house in Manor Gardens

Manor Gardens: the story so far…

Eight leading firms of architects competed for the chance to design the new scheme.

We set them the challenge of building flexible, accessible accommodation that reflects the principles of a welcoming and inclusive community. After a rigorous selection process, PRP Architects were selected for their rare blend of accessible design expertise and award-winning credentials.

Belonging is at the heart of the new development – for both existing and future residents. We are phasing the redevelopment to make sure everyone who currently lives in Manor Gardens will be able to remain onsite throughout. Anxieties about change are natural, so we are working hard to address residents’ concerns. We are doing all we can to stimulate conversations and share ideas with residents about future possibilities, enabling them to take part in shaping the design.


“Barnwood’s commitment to enabling individuals and developing communities makes them a pleasure to work with. We’re genuinely excited about ensuring that these values are reflected in every aspect of the Manor Gardens redevelopment over the next few years.“
David Peregrine, Elim Housing

We work closely with our managing agent Elim Housing, and together we are developing ways to give residents more choice and control over housing and care provision. There is already a strong sense of community amongst the people who live at Manor Gardens. Residents love the gardens and recognise the benefit of a peaceful, supportive environment. We want that to be available to more people, with higher-quality homes and an even stronger sense of belonging.
