Cairdean House Care Home

BPA Architecture

Cairdean House Care Home houses 90 residents in nine 10 person 'flats' each with their own dining area, kitchenette and sitting room. The three wings radiate around a central courtyard forming a 'public square' which allows daylight to percolate into the centre of the building and provides a useful orientation tool for residents and staff. The building also houses a number of central facilities for the enjoyment of the residents including a cinema, hairdressers, spa room and library. BPA applied their experience of designing for dementia to assist separately appointed interior designers in providing an easily comprehensible care environment. .
