Ellis Williams Architects

The Joshua Tree Charity

We have a passion for creating
great buildings and spaces that
people enjoy using. Our approach
is collaborative, enthusiastic and
consistent - design individuality
that is achieved by an ability to
listen and reflect client need

Unsere Passion ist das Entwerfen von Gebäuden und Räumen, in denen sich Menschen wohlfühlen. Unsere Haltung ist gemeinschaftlich, enthusiastisch und anspruchsvoll. Unsere Ergebnisse sind getragen von der Fähigkeit des Zuhörens und der Umsetzung der Anforderungen und Wünsche des Bauherrn.

 

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.
