An environment of calm


Fife retirement development completed

McCarthy & Stone has completed its latest retirement development in Anstruther, Fife.

A former hotel; Beacon Court features 21 one-bed and 18 two-bed apartments together with a large communal lounge and sunroom with a terrace giving stunning views overlooking the Firth of Forth.

Interior design was led be Designer Contracts whose brief was to create a scheme that was modern, stylish and homely, with a minimalistic, contemporary feel that was calming and relaxing.

First impressions were an important factor when deciding on flooring for the grand entrance lobby, where Amtico flooring has been installed due to its easy-to-maintain features and hardwearing nature.

To create an environment of calm in the communal lounge, fabric and furnishings in a palette of soft, neutral tones were used.

As several groups will use this space at the same time, it also needed to have a social and versatile layout so separate areas have been constructed using seating, with an additional area for watching TV.

Giving the feeling of being outdoors, the sun lounge and terrace balcony are furnished with garden furniture in wood and rattan.
