The practice designed this 60 apartment Assisted Living scheme for McCarthy & Stone in 2010, which was completed on site in 2013. The site is located near the seafront in Porthcawl in south Wales and is an irregular shape piece of land with an area of 0.32ha. The location and the shape of the building footprint makes best use of the available space on the site and allows for direct and oblique sea views on either side of the adjacent Seabank Hotel. Particular attention was paid to the landscaping and the layout of the limited external communal areas to make best use of these spaces. The seaside location of this site inspired the nautical themed elements that can be found in this building.
