Primrose Nursing Home

home » Portfolio » Healthcare » Primrose Nursing Home

The proposed 120-bed nursing home, situated in Rathgar area, encompasses a four-story structure covering 7,630 sqm, alongside ancillary building totalling 85 sqm. Configured in the shape of an 'H', it features two courtyards, aiming to blend with the local context and enhance Rathgar's residential appeal. Access to the site will be from the west via the existing road network, with parking provision and disabled spaces at the front, and additional spaces around the development. Courtyards will be landscaped and connected to the main building, promoting accessibility and usability for residents and visitors. The architectural design prioritizes interaction with the surroundings, ensuring minimal impact on neighbouring houses. The building's layout maximizes views and light while minimizing overlooking concerns.

Facade design utilizes light shaded brick, composite wood cladding, and metal elements to integrate with the neighbourhood’s warm tones of the residential properties. The ground floor hosts entrance areas, bedrooms, offices, facilities, and landscaped courtyards, while upper floors accommodate bedrooms, support areas, and communal spaces. The design emphasizes simplicity, accessibility, and attention to detail, aiming to create a recognizable, high-quality environment for residents and the local community. The proposed materials and colour palette aim to evoke a familiar, homely atmosphere, contributing to a calm and stable living environment within the facility.
