North Berwick care home and hotel given all clear
May 8 2019
Yeoman McAllister Architects have won planning permission from East Lothian Council to create a 70-bed care home and 65-bed hotel in North Berwick led by Frontier Estates.
The Tantallon Road project is situated 2km from the town centre at the foot of Berwick Law and is split between a traditional style care home and more contemporary styled hotel, each sharing a simple palette of brick, timber and render.
In a design statement, the architects outlined their approach saying: “Both the care home and hotel have been designed in a way to break down the massing of the built form whilst using existing and proposed planting to screen and enhance the setting.
“With the addition of considered landscape design, we will create vistas and private gardens throughout the scheme.”
The land is currently utilised by light industry and lies beyond the North Berwick Conservation Area.
