As part of a larger scope of works, Thextonsmith were engaged to complete a significant refurbishment of the existing Kalyna Care facility. A detailed review and design process was undertaken to achieve a bright, new contemporary look focusing on resident and visitor experience, whilst maintaining the facility’s Ukranian heritage.
The entry, resident living and administration spaces were refurbished, with the creation of additional resident spaces due to efficient design and furniture layouts.
Due to the age and design of the original facility, limited activity space was available to residents, so a new social hub was created with a courtyard pavilion café, connecting existing resident groups and inviting life and activity into the heart of the facility.
Approximately 40 existing resident rooms were refurbished, with conversion of 10 existing rooms to eight premium rooms. An understated sense of luxury within resident rooms was created with the addition of a fabric bedhead, new joinery in walnut laminates and full-length curtains and sheers. Premium rooms feature a raised coffer ceiling, banquette seating, kitchenette and sitting area opening directly onto a semi-private alfresco courtyard.
