Beachcroft House provides a state-of-the art 84-bed care home for Westminster City Council along with 31 private sale apartments for Durkan. The scheme is set within a Victorian terrace surrounded by leafy trees and gardens. At ground level there is a beautifully landscaped garden that is easily accessible for care home residents. Short walking routes have been created that lead to sheltered spaces for residents to sit, rest and enjoy. A large area with space for outdoor dining tables and chairs has also been included so that residents can dine outside when the weather is good. Seasonal planting with feature tree planting, aids users to experience the garden throughout the year. Dementia-friendly design considerations such as these ensure residents can benefit from their natural surroundings, helping to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
