West Edinburgh retirement living project to address changing demographics

Juniper Residential and Yeoman McAllister Architects have teamed up for another retirement living development, this time at Barnton Avenue West, Edinburgh.

Consisting of 44 apartments and four houses earmarked exclusively for the over-55 market Barnton House will provide a range of communal facilities and landscaped grounds by Keith Woods Landscape Design overlooking Royal Burgess Golf Course.

Spanning a two-hectare site the accommodation will be spread across three separate buildings surrounded by established woodland. Faced in a combination of white render, stone-coloured brick and dark grey cladding the main apartment block will top out at three-storeys, including accommodation within the roof space.

Seeking approval from planners the architects wrote: "The area is appropriate for residential development and in a sustainable location close to surrounding local amenities and public transport. The site has also been subject to flooding and drainage issues which will be resolved as part of the current proposal."

The latest proposal supersedes a 2018 sheltered housing application for 48 homes which will now be withdrawn.

Presumably that pic was taken before the modelmaker added the roofs.
A retirement home for ants?

Nae windaes or doors either!

Or maybe it's not a literal representation of the building.
