InSeptember 2018 Ercle were approached by the owner of the Glenkealey Care Home to look at redeveloping the site. Due to changing regulations in providing care in the UK the site was no longer viable asa care facility. The original villa that sat on the site was much altered and was arranged over 4 floors, with new and old sections having differing floor heights. Having undertaken an initial feasibility study the conversion of the existing building was discounted.
The new proposed building proposes 10no. flats across three floors and provide sparking and amenity space to the development. The proposal steps back and away from adjacent buildings as it rises up. This allows for each of the apartments to have a dedicated outside space. Careful consideration to the design of the block was undertaken to ensure that seven of the ten flats achieve a sea view.
