Stromness Care Home

Young and Gault (Architecture and Design) Ltd

Design proposals have been approved to build a 40 bed care home in Stromness, Orkney, on behalf of the local council.

The care home has been designed to meet the University of Stirling designing for dementia standards and has been conceived as a cluster of small group living units of 10 beds to reduce the institutional characteristics of the home.

The building will enjoy a prominent setting with panoramic views toward Stromness.

Our design approach adopts simple massing forms typical of Orkney, robustly detailed and nestled into the spectacular landscape setting.
