Proposed Care Home Village, Lumphinnans, Fife
Designed for Fife Council, the Care Home Village comprises of a 60 bed care home, day care facilities and extra care flats. Sited at Lumphinnans this development provides much needed care facilities in central Fife for the community.
The two storey care home has a cruciform layout that enables the 5 bedroom wings, each containing 12 bedrooms, to be easily managed from a central hub that contains day spaces and ancillary accommodation. One of the legs of the cruciform at ground level houses the self contained Day Care Facilities and kitchen while another provides space for management and training.
The Extra Care Building is a more conventional L-shaped plan built over two storeys with a central corridor. Within it are 30 apartments with supporting communal facilities in a barrier free arrangement. The varying sizes of apartments cater for the differing needs of Fife Council’s elderly clients.
Work commenced in February 2016 and is anticipated to be completed in July 2017.
