We’re getting into aged care and we’re proud of it. Working with Summerset to rollout their world-class retirement villages is more than just an honour. The projects are testament to our design team and their determination to work in collaboration with a client who has a great deal of vision.
The first Summerset in Christchurch, Wigram is everything that we love about design. Breathing a whole new fresh perspective into a sector that was historically humdrum and beige. Aged care now has style, sophistication and a smidge of edge.
Our dedicated team worked tirelessly to pull this together and all their skills from designing residential, hospo and retail have morphed together and become a formidable force in designing spaces for the elderly.
Every fixture, fitting, piece of furniture, painting, accessory and finishes were selected by our team and even much of it was also installed via a mammoth effort of two weeks spent down in Wigram, unpacking boxes and laying out and installing everything.
Every inch was chosen to make the space look like the guest’s home they always wanted and this was achieved in spades.
From the library, with comfy, stately occasional chairs, to the dining room – that looks just like a modern café, a salon, a lounge area which looks just like a living room, right through to a pool table and a piano. Every space actually takes your breath away.
We’re off to Auckland now to do a whole design and soft fit out of Summerset, Ellerslie. Watch this space!
