Harvey ‘Riverside’ Nursing Home, Swords, Dublin
The proposal for Riverside Nursing Home was to design a 22 bedroom extension to the existing 16 bedroom Nursing Home. The design required a full internal spatial re-design to ensure all the HIQA guidelines were addressed. The overall bedroom numbers proposed informed the design on the requirements for the resident’s communal spaces such as dining, sitting and recreational. These were all comfortably addressed.
The new extension was organised around a central landscaped courtyard and views to include sitting areas around the circulation spaces were introduced at every opportunity. New additional elements to the nursing home such as the main entrance, the reception area, the visitor rooms and back of house facilities were also introduced.
Additional safe landscaped patios to the south west facades complete the proposal.
