Retirement & Extra Care

McNeil Beechey O'Neill Architects have been involved in the design and development of Retirement & Extra Care facilities, including EMI and Dementia, since 1990. We were the Architects for Hartrigg Oaks, the first Continuing Care Community in the UK, and have remained at the forefront of retirement & extra care design ever since.

Our experience includes; 40+ unit new-build projects; Retirement & Extra Care Villages of 300+ units with varied ranges of communal facilities. The provision of extra care & retirement facilities associated with new build or refurbishment and extension of care homes. We have also secured Planning Permissions for a number of projects in various planning sensitive areas, including green-belt and conservation areas.


MBO Architects has a long history of working in the care sector with retained knowledge within the practice ranging from residential, nursing, respite, complex needs, independent living, dementia and psychiatric care design.

The schemes illustrated on this website are a sample of the range of our experience encompassing modest refurbishment and extensions adapting & updating existing facilities through wholesale renovation to new build schemes on green field sites. We are happy to discuss is more detail any queries. We are unable to show some sensitive schemes here, however, we are able to discuss on an individual basis the merits and approach to the design.
