This project was a part of the Dementia Design Studio led by Professor Ian Forbes (leading healthcare professor in this field) which investigates healthcare design and design for the elderly needing special care. 171 Boronia Rd Greenacre is a BUPA nursing home that also includes facilities aimed at dementia care.

The studio is a research based design project and my project focuses on aiding the memory of residents through the design of the building.

Strategies adopted in the design includes:

–  creating a domestic and home-like spaces
– memory cues to build familiarity
– usability of utilities
