St Vincent’s Care Home, Hammersmith

About this project

 2007 – Winner of Pinders Healthcare Design Awards. Best Elderly Care Contemporary Design

St Vincent’s Care Home in Hammersmith is a 3 storey, 92 bed nursing home incorporating severe dementia care facilities.

Provides at ground floor is a Social Services unit to offer care on a day visit basis for at least 40 local people, which includes erhabilitiation, activities, dining, bathing and rest areas.

Dominant elements of the existing building have been interpreted into the new building form, for example, the brick pilaster/arch detail on the main entrance elevation and the stepped brick parapet detail at fourth floor level. And, of course, the brick type had to be carefully selected to reflect the typical London Stock yellow.

The final design of radius profile aluminium from a design point of view was the most appropriate to co-ordinate with the numerous brick and artstone arches.
