Bladon House School specialises in autism, speech and language disorders, moderate to severe learning difficulties and associated behavioural difficulties. JDA designed a cluster of three modern homes for students at the school to replace existing outdated accommodation. The approach was to create a home environment for each student rather than living in a larger accommodation unit. This approach to create smaller homes results in a quieter and better managed environment for students. The development takes the form of separate pavilions, echoing the classical form of Bladon House itself.
