BALLYCOPELAND CARE VILLAGE : MILLISLE, IRELAND

Client : Belfast Central Mission

 

DLA FreemanWhite were invited to submit proposals for a full site
concept design
for a comprehensive retirement care village near Millisle in County Down on behalf of Belfast Central Mission. Upon completion the scheme will offer a
60 bed nursing
and
residential dementia
(EMI) care home as well as
60 extra care apartments
and associated social and leisure facilities on a 6 acre site by the coast.

The design took its
inspiration
from the site’s
beautiful location
being situated between the Irish Sea and the green hills of the Ard’s peninsula as well as the
natural
shape of the land created by this
environment
.

As this project was the start of the
redevelopment
for the whole site, it was important for the proposal to reflect the natural beauty of its setting to provide as
sense of location
as well as a
safe
and
secure
place to live.
