Fern Dean Nursing Home, Dublin

Reddy A+U have developed the extension to the existing operational nursing home. The extension comprises 29 bedrooms, new dining and sitting areas and the refurbishment of existing day room accommodation. The award winning scheme creates a new benchmark in Irish later life care facilities and has been recognised as such by the plaudits received from both Client and Awards received.

With an emphasis on the therapeutic value of a homelike environment, the design seeks to create the ambience of home rather than an institution, with natural colours, good daylight and extensive views to the outside.

Natural light is an essential element in senior living environments. Roof lights and secondary glazing between the day rooms maximise views and daylight to ensure the sitting spaces are welcoming.

Through the placement of familiar objects, built-in joinery, artwork and careful attention to detailing, the day-spaces and congregational areas are broken down into homely spaces for residents. This is further developed through the careful attention to detail and finishes which meet clinical needs while achieving the ambience and quality of a boutique hotel.

Ronan Willis (Director of Willis Care Group) said

“Reddy A+U… created a superb scheme for our nursing home…The brief was to create a finish that was both contemporary and luxurious, but most importantly functional. All of these requirements were achieved and our expectations were exceeded. I believe that the design team have created a scheme that is unique when benchmarked against other nursing home and healthcare facilities in Ireland.’
