Home Care Home is the proposal for a care home for the future ageing generation. Situated in the grounds of a former Royal Infirmary on the north bank of the River South Esk, where it meets the Montrose Coastal Basin. The care home is divided into two floors; the ground level serves as an open community hub for residents, family members, daycare occupants and the public to enjoy every aspect of the space. It is intended to be transformed into a market hall, exhibition space or a performance auditorium, inspired by the everchanging rockpool environment and the concept of tidal waves, which routinely change their surroundings with every tide. The waves are people who come into the home constantly bringing fresh and exciting social opportunities for residents who dwell within. The structure of the care home means residents still keep a form of autonomy over their daily schedule, preserving interests and hobbies in old age, and providing a sense of belonging. The first floor serves the purpose of a residential care home with a mixture of private, semi-private and public spaces for the diversity of residents who occupy the space, allowing them to keep their sense of identity. ‘Harbour’ is a gathering spot where residents can look down onto the ‘rockpool’, admiring the waves of people occupying the space. ‘The Pier’, is an outdoor terrace where residents can stay connected with nature while taking in beautiful views of the Montrose Coastal Basin.
