LISBURN NURSING HOME
This nursing home at Causeway End Road, Lisburn received planning permission in October 2013 for 76 bedrooms with staff rooms, dayrooms, kitchens, and other associated amenities arranged around a central sheltered south facing courtyard on complex site, 5 meters below road level.
The patinated copper and stone design with timber detailing provides an attractive material palette for the scheme. The sloping site was addressed using a series of gabion retaining walls and banked slopes to allow a flat plateau from which the new home was to be constructed.
