Woodside Hall, Wootton

Colville Care Ltd is a well established provider of quality Nursing Care on the Island, with Nursing Homes at Kitehill and Woodside, both in Wootton.

Woodside Hall was an old Victorian Villa, in a poor state of repair, with only 19 bedrooms, one of which was shared. In order to secure its future, it was proposed to double its capacity and to bring all the existing rooms and facilities up to and generally in excess of the national minimum standards.

The client’s desire to address the specific requirements of patients who have both elderly nursing and dementia needs led to the formation of an enclosed courtyard. This helped reinforce the protective ambience of the home and also enables residents to safely circulate in a route around the building. It also aids communication and helps to foster a friendly feeling of community.

Colville Care Ltd were keen that the proposals should help dispel the perception of an ‘institutional’ building and championed the use of a green oak frame to form the reception and feature entrance.
