The design brief for this project was to create a Care Home that would indulge its residents with the look and feel of an English Country Manor. In addition, the client required some unique but appropriate design treatments for a number of communal spaces throughout the building.
The project had to remain within budget and the numerous communal and ‘end of corridor’ rooms presented some tough design challenges. The Country Manor style had to be maintained throughout the design and therefore any schemes used in communal spaces had to reflect that. We developed a number of designs for these rooms which we considered to be unique for that time and these included themed areas such as a Country Pub, Village Shop, Hair Salon, Cinema and a Golf Pavilion.
The Camberley Arms Pub was designed to include many features typical of a traditional village pub. These included a wood paneled bar complete with a set of brass and ceramic handled pumps, hop festoons, horse brass and toby jug ornaments, leather tub chairs and pub-style tables. The Golf Pavilion incorporated a mini putting green, which extended out into the grounds via a pair of French windows. And the Cinema included a filmstrip light box which had a classic movie poster in each frame. Having been commended by Stirling University for its design, Camberley Manor went on to win the coveted Pinders Healthcare Design Award in 2016.
