Senior living and healthcare schemes can be just as beautiful as 5* venues! Protocol worked on projects for Birchgrove Assisted Living who are developing a portfolio of high-quality assisted living apartments.
Working with designers Devon Interiors, Protocol was briefed to supply luxury, comfortable furniture options for Woodbank Apartments and Queensgate Apartments. Both retirement communities feature a tasteful design that is spacious and light, with modern furniture to complement and help make the place feel homely.
For Woodbank Apartments, a range of dining and lounge models including the Elane, Glam and Venice collections were supplied for the communal facilities which included an on-site brasserie, club room, snug bar, and reception area. For Queensgate Apartments, Protocol supplied various sofas, lounge armchairs and dining furniture including the Isotta, Euforia and Berlino collections for the restaurant, club room and hair salon. Both projects feature bold and vibrant print fabrics.
These Birchgrove projects are a great example of how healthcare furniture can be both functional and stylish and does not have to fall under the stereotypical ‘care home design’.
