Client Background

This new care home will provide 68 bedrooms offering residential and nursing care for the elderly in Poole.  This has been designed in an art deco style, incorporating a large rooftop garden and views over the surrounding area.  Living walls were the next step in bringing nature closer, allowing the residents to experience the wonders of biophilic design from the comfort of their home.

Living Wall Stretching Length Of A Communal Courtyard With Staircase

A better view

Viritopia were chosen to carry out the full living wall project from design to installation.  This rectangular living wall spans a courtyard that can be viewed from the same level and above via an overhead walkway.  This oasis creates an area of relaxation for the residents and enhances the view from the various elevations.

We worked with Colten Developments on this project.
