Falkland Grange Case Study

0

Falkland Grange is a 64-bed care facility in Berkshire, owned by Porthaven Care Homes. Profile bed no rails
The Care Home Interiors Company provided a full interior fit-out for this new build home
including interior design, full installation, and the sourcing and manufacture of furnishings.With their expertise in dementia design, The Care Home Interiors Company helped Falkland Grange to secure a prestigious Pinders design award in the dementia design category.
Background to the project
The Care Home Interiors Company has worked with Porthaven Care Homes for over ten years. Falkland Grange is the sixteenth care home that the team worked on together and is the culmination of everything that both parties have learned through their experience.
The brief
Falkland Grange was designed and built from the ground up, therefore creating a blank canvas for The Care Home Interiors Company. The brief was to design, supply, and install interiors throughout the home. Porthaven asked for durable furnishings that were at the forefront of the latest design concepts. They also wanted to ensure resident comfort and safety throughout the home.

The design process
Unlike other interior projects, no scheme boards were produced for Falkland Grange. Instead, the design team collaborated closely with Porthaven’s Commercial Director over a two week period, creating schemes for each room before storing them in an in-house design wallet for reference.

Unique interiors
Each of the 64 bedrooms at Falkland Grange has a unique interior. Every room has a coordinating lamp, chair, curtains, cushions, and headboard in a different design scheme. All members of the team felt that residents deserved a unique room and that the home should not feel like an institution.

Handcrafted furnishings

All the soft furnishings at Falkland Grange were produced in-house by The Care Home Interiors Company. Handcrafted furnishings helped to deliver a superior product while keeping the costs down. The client was able to see their furnishings in production while attending on-site meetings.
Award-winning
Falkland Grange was entered into the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards 2020 and won the award for Best Specialist Dementia Design. The judging panel felt that the home was an excellent example of thoughtful and intuitive design for those living with dementia.
