Originally the headquarters of chocolate maker Terry’s of York, this landmark 1920s building sat derelict after the facility closed. Converting it to a care home received unanimous support from the city of York, as long its historical features were preserved. NORR’s design philosophy was to create a unique, pioneering and stimulating village with compassionate care at its heart.
