Portobello care home goes in for planning
November 25 201460 bed care home including a café, library and activity spaces at Inchview Terrace, Edinburgh.
Designed on behalf of Care UK the Portobello property will feature dementia friendly gardens designed by Arterre to which all ground floor tenants will have direct access.
Situated on a disused car dealership the home will minimise bedroom groupings to eight or less to mitigate confusion amongst residents with each flat equipped with its own dining room, lounges and quiet room.
Residents will also have access to terraces and balconies on upper levels, offering views out to Arthur’s Seat and the beach.
In their design statement BPA said: “The proposed mass of the building combined with the mass of the prominent red brick old Technical College opposite will form a ‘gateway’ between the city and Portobello. Our proposals also use red brick to tie in with this context.”
All bedrooms will be wheelchair accessible to allow residents with worsening mobility to remain in familiar surroundings
