Luxury retirement complex featuring a space saving kitchenette from John Strand

This luxury retirement complex in the beautiful setting of the New Forest has set new standards for top-end assisted living. Opened in September 2008, the current complex was built on the site of the former Sway Place nursing home and is the first assisted living project to be built by Shelbourne, a subsidiary of the O’Flynn Group.

John Strand provided kitchen design and advice on the installation. The brief demanded kitchens which would work well within a small space, not intrude into the apartment’s open plan living space and offer a practical and appealing design. After some consultation the ‘Designer’ range Kitchenette was selected. The oak finish was chosen to compliment the interior scheme.

The kitchen, which is manufactured exclusively for John Strand is delivered as a complete unit, this means minimal installation on site and so reducing the need for a lengthy and labour intensive fitting process.

Bespoke ‘Designer’ Oven-Combi Kitchen in oak finish with granite effect worktop. Dimensions—w2170mm, d600mm, h2000mm.

O’Flynn Group chairman Michael O’Flynn commented on the project:

“Ken (Ken Waterhouse, MD of Shelbourne] said he wanted to create a five-star, but I think he has delivered a seven-star project.  The exemplary quality of the design and workmanship in the development is a key part of its seven-star finish.
