Show more "Llys Ton Extra Care Housing in Kenfig Hill, Bridgend is a residential facility for older people, providing ‘homes for life’ by establishing community spirit and encouraging independent living. The state-of-the-art facilities include 39 self-contained flats and generous communal spaces, all arranged around a landscaped courtyard.
Llys Ton is aimed at people aged 50 and over who wish to live independently in a community environment, but also need on-site support. Care is flexible as tenants’ needs change, but always with a strong emphasis on choice and independence.
"This development is our first extra-care project for Bridgend-based Valleys-to-Coast Housing Association. Located in Kenfig Hill, it replaces an out-dated residential home for the elderly with 39 flats, together with extensive, state-of-the-art communal facilities; and has been designed to achieve a BREEAM “Excellent” rating. Organised around an east-facing courtyard garden, the communal accommodation is orientated to promote passive solar gain and natural ventilation via its central, south-facing, double-height restaurant/activities space. In these and other ways we have endeavoured to fuse our people-centred architecture with common-sense sustainability, to produce an extra-care architecture that responds to its users and to its site in equal measure.""
