Monkbarns Care Home
This new build 65 bed care home replaces the existing ageing Monkbarns House Care home with a state of the art facility. The site is in a prominent location at the entrance to Arbroath overlooking open park land and the coast line along Dundee Road. The scheme is arranged around a sheltered courtyard space and the design seeks to push the traditional boundaries of care home design. Traditional pitched roof forms are adopted but dormer features formed with zinc cladding and stainless steel & glass balustrades to balconies reinforce the contemporary aesthetic. Day Dining rooms are located in principle locations to take advantage of the sea views. Large areas of glazing to day lounges and corridor ends provide bright and naturally lit pleasant spaces for the residents to enjoy.
