Valencia Nursing Care

Located in Carmel, Western Australia, Valencia Nursing Home is specialised in high care and support for residents with Dementia. The 80- bed extension of the facility aims to create a positive and comfortable environment for residents to spend the late years of life in serenity.

The design focuses on creating a sense of home and familiarity for the elderly residents by activating simple circulations with a variety of social and functional spaces that simulates walking down streets of their old neighbourhoods.

Formal language of gabled roof and material assemblage are informed by the local vernacular to generate visual familiarity and to create welcoming spaces.

Utilising nature’s therapeutic and healing effects on mental and physical health, the design opens the entire facility to pleasant views, natural light and ventilation. The introduction of an inner orange grove also promotes healthy sensory simulation and a safe and secure outdoor space for residents with dementia.
