A Specialist residential care facility for elderly suffering with serious dementia. The scheme is a bespoke modern building designed to address the specific requirements of the residents.

The accommodation consists of 16 long term and 16 short term en-suite bedrooms with associated dining, lounge and activity areas. The project also includes: a full production kitchen, restaurant/cafe, hairdresser, day-care, activity rooms and treatment facilities etc. The building will offer long-term residential care alongside short-term intermediate and respite care/rehabilitation within a safe environment.

While it was a challenge to work within the existing topography and constraints of the site, it has resulted in a proposal that ensures both residents and visitors to the Day facilities are afforded great views over the landscape while still maintaining a visual and physical link with the market square.
