Prestwick care home plans finalised
August 4 201769-apartment extra care accommodation block by McCarthy & Stone at Prestwick seafront, necessitating demolition of two former houses - which have subsequently been merged to form one hotel.
Designed by Holmes Miller to cater for the frail elderly the scheme aims to enable residents to remain living in the local community by offering residents additional support and companionship.
Set back from the main road the scheme aims to present a ‘strong frontage’ to the sea behind a raised parapet with proposed materials set to include red multi-facing brick, grey fibre cement cladding and off-white render.
In their design statement the architects wrote: “Full advantage is made of the dramatic views over the sea and the golf course by providing each flat with a balcony. Balconies have been grouped together to form projections from the main façade. These grouped balconies are clad in black fibre cement cladding panels to provide a rhythm and interest to the elevations and to celebrate important parts of the façade.”
The finalised plans follow a public consultation exercise carried out in the spring.
