Montrose House and Stronach Day Service provides residential care facilities and a community resource centre in Brodick on the Isle of Arran off the West coast of Scotland.
The accomodation consists of 30 single bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms and ancillary spaces for both residents and staff.
Each group of ten bedrooms are set up as a quasi-house arrangement with their own lounge and dining room from where direct access leads to a level terrace for outdoor activities on good weather days.
The building has been constructed of natural stone and render finished walls with steep pitched natural slate roofs.
The plan arrangement, the materials and styling of the chimneys and changing roof lines reflect the vernacular style of the island's farm steadings and cottages rooting the building contextually in the beautiful natural landscape.
