The vision for the new respite care facility has been developed closely between Neath and Port Talbot Borough Council (NPTCBC), parent carers and the design team. The following themes have guided this process: Create a stimulating fusion of care, home and awareness of the outside world; Create a flagship facility in Wales that celebrates synergy between user and carers; Respect the dignity and privacy of the users in a safe and secure environment; Be an exemplar building that promotes healthy living and lifestyles within the community, and has as near zero carbon emissions as possible, use renewable energy, passive design methods and sensible use of local materials wherever possible; To promote sustainable building and demonstrate renewable energy use (heat, power and water management) in this market sector to as wide an audience as possible.
