Ebbw Vale Extra Care & Dementia

Ebbw Vale Extra Care and Dementia

Gwent

Linc Cymru identified a site on College Road, Ebbw Vale, next to an EMI Day Hospital to provide an independent living setting for local older people whose only previous move-on option was residential care. They had commissioned a feasibility study but were not satisfied with the design outcome.

Quattro were already working with the client and constructor team and came up with a new layout for a 41 flat Extra Care building with wings of accommodation, which embraced and sheltered a sunny garden, essential on this windswept, sloping site. A brightly coloured link contains the main entrance and provides views through to the garden room beyond. The colour scheme was chosen to represent local landscape and views.
