DEANERY ROAD

Warmley, Bristol

Choice Care Group (specialists in the care of people with complex needs) and Design Build Solutions invited Refolo Landscape Architects to design the communal gardens for a new specialist care home in Bristol.

The design is the product of a wide research in the specific needs of the users, backed up by desktop studies in the subject. The gardens provide a simple looped pathway around a sensory garden to minimize spatial confusion. Freedom within the space is allowed within a secure perimeter that limits access to potentially dangerous situations. Seating is arranged for both groups and individuals. Covered canopies provide adequate shelter and protection. Gardening is used as a key therapeutic activity in the care home.
