Design For Dementia
Ali will be speaking at the International Design for Dementia HammonCare Conference in June 2018. Her talk will be centred around the newly completed Narrogin Cottage Homes project for people living with dementia.
SPH architecture + interiors are proud to announce this purpose-built dementia facility, named the ‘Maxwell Wing’ is now operational.
The essence of the Narrogin Cottage Homes project was to create a therapeutic environment that would nurture, stimulate and liberate people living with dementia.
Through a collaborative design process, SPH architecture + interiors was able to draw on the scientific knowledge and first-hand experience of health professionals, to ensure a best practice facility centered around the functional needs of both residents and support staff.
The design engages residents in communal activities, whilst offering private spaces for retreat and relaxation, enabling residents to live with dignity and promote greater independence in a secure environment.
SPH architecture + interiors were engaged as full-service consultants for the 14 bed facility responsible for the design, documentation and construction management for the project. The project was successfully completed on time and on budget in late 2017.
