Interior scheme for specially reconfigured bungalow
We were commissioned to develop an interior scheme fora specially reconfigured bungalow for young adults with varying levels of learning disabilities. The scheme comprises of 1 permanent residents suite and 3 further en-suite bedrooms with private lounges for respite care.
There is a large communal dining room which leads into a veranda which overlooks the re landscaped garden. The key aspects of the brief were to ensure a domestic, warm and comfortable environment whilst still incorporating the necessary care requirements, durability and robustness. During the design process the Space Studio conducted a coffee morning with the service users and their families to gain feedback and approval on the proposed colour schemes and furniture selection. We also tendered all of the FF&E items to ensure the client got best value for money. The colour scheme was different within each suite. Using a clever blend of upholsteries in rich tones with painted feature walls and fabric panel artwork the scheme became a bright and welcoming space.
