Castlegreen Edinburgh

This new dementia care facility in Craigmillar for The City of Edinburgh Council provides 60 dementia bedrooms with en-suite facilities in 6 groups of 10 residents. Each residential wing is arranged around a safe courtyard space, allowing all circulation areas to be daylit. Facilities include dining areas, lounges, quiet rooms, hairdresser room, computer room, a multi-function activity room and covered external balcony areas.

The project won the Dementia Service Award at the Scottish Care Awards.

 The rear garden area was designed as a generous dementia-friendly garden, with sunlight and shade, safe changes in level, clear routes, and good passive surveillance to maximise independence.

The City of Edinburgh Council novated us to the main contractor, Graham Construction, under a design and build procurement route. This was the first in a series of care homes we have designed and delivered for the City of Edinburgh.
