My Project I decided to design an intermediate care home. The inspiration for my design came after my experience in working as a locum in a care home during the pandemic.
I witnessed many residents struggle with the isolation from their families. Having no or very little contact impacted on their health and wellbeing. Within my design, I feel I have achieved what I set out to. I have made the rooms larger with an en-suite. The use of equipment can be used safely without any obstructions and allow the service user the freedom to move around in a safe environment. Natural Light will flood the building due to the input of large windows and along with the use of natural materials and plants have brought the outside inside. A visitor’s room will allow safe visits from families during this pandemic and any other that may occur in the future.
