Project Description :

Our design for this prestigious site at Swansea Waterfront engages the inspired brief produced by the client whilst respecting the principles established within the Welsh Assembly Government’s Urban Design Guide.


The scheme embraces the waterfront’s urban fabric and provides an exciting, safe and pleasant environment in which to live and work. Phase 1 consists of a 94 bed Care Centre.


An active retail frontage sits below the Care Centre along the Prince of Wales Dock acting as its podium. The Care Centre’s undulating facade reduces the impact of the buildings length by generating recesses that a produce a vertical emphasis. The deep reveals help to reduce solar gain whilst creating sheltered balconies for the building users.


Good quality, long lasting materials will be used in the development in a well mannered contemporary idiom.
