Through a mini competition hosted through the Procurement for Housing framework (PFH) Vision was successful in providing a complete and coherent design concept to Hanover Housing Association for the furnishing replacement at three Hanover Estates.

Hanover is a National provider of housing and services for people in later life, a not for profit organisation reinvesting into maintaining properties, improving services and building more homes for older people. The three estates selected for refurbishment were, Portland Mews, Bridlington, Sycamore Lodge, Spennymoor and Chester View, Ouston.

The case study video above focuses on Vision’s work at Hanover Portland Mews. Portland Mews is a 2-storey block built in 2002 that houses 36 apartments. A series of communal facilities are available for residents including a lounge, restaurant, hair salon, shop, laundry and staff accommodation.

Vision initially supplied design proposals and physical mood board for the main communal areas and guest rooms with a brief of creating a modern and contemporary feel whilst remaining homely and fit for purpose.

Vision involved resident’s right from the start, hosting consultation meetings where we presented the shortlist of proposals. This enabled residents to make the final decisions on the design and be informed of the refurbishment timescales.

We supplied bespoke window dressings and soft furnishings, furniture, artwork, mirrors and accessories along with specifying flooring and decoration.

Kimberley said: “Vision worked closely and effectively with Hanover aiding to deliver all three schemes on time and within budget. Vision are extremely proud to be a supplier to Hanover Housing is the successful delivery of the projects.”
