The Joshua Tree holiday house and support centre is a new build project for the Cheshire charity founded with the aim of providing children suffering from critical and life threatening illnesses and their families a free short holiday break in the countryside.
We have had links with the charity since its inception and were instrumental in finding its beautiful site, situated adjacent to ancient woodland and a neighbouring site of special scientific interest. Working closely with the Joshua Tree trustees, we developed a comprehensive and inspiring briefing document that has since gone on to underpin the development of the building’s design.
