Care Home of the Year 2018

Healthcare, Nursing Home


McGurk Architects planning approval for Macklin Group’s Milesian Manor Home expanded it’s capacity from twenty-four beds (38 residents) to 90 single en-suited rooms fully compliant with ROIA guidelines. The phased development quadrupled the original square footage of the home, forming two internal courtyard spaces. The first courtyard block completed in February 2018 and hosted 44 en-suited bedrooms on three levels. Site works included a new entrance arrangement off Ballyheifer Road, landscaping, fencing and parking. The design masks the scale of this large building’s footprint on a restricted site housing the second-floor accommodation in a mansard roof construction. Lead clad box dormers give the composition rhythm and scale, while projecting brickwork bays add interest to the frontage.
