Project Description :

Rio Architects presented this scheme to Linc Cymru for an Extracare facility at a site to the North of Cardiff. We were part of a Contractor led team in competition with 5 others to provide a circa 90 bed facility and associated facilities including health care, shops, hairdressers, function rooms etc.

 

Rio developed a detailed design which reflected and enhanced the Clients aspirations based on a mixture of accommodation to reflect market trends including 1, 2 and 3 bed apartments.

 

Our proposals centred on creating a central garden area as the focus of the scheme around which the accommodation was arranged with views and balconies opening onto the garden. Within the accommodation maximising natural light and creating a sense of place at the apartments front doors were key factors in the design.

 

The Client commended the design for its ability to answer the brief whilst creating an imaginative, intimate and pleasant environment.
