IVC Commercial Enhances Wellbeing at The Four Ferns Nursing Home
As a five-star residential care home, it was important that the flooring of The Four Ferns reflected its status to attract residents and so Reddy Architecture, having used IVC Commercial’s floors on previous projects, knew just where to turn.
Danielle Delaney, Reddy Architecture: “We’ve used IVC Commercial’s flooring solutions on previous projects and loved the end results, so we turned to the company once again for floors at The Four Ferns. The Studio Moods LVT concept, along with Moduleo 55 Woods, has bought a natural esthetic that enhances the wellbeing of residents, while providing a floor that’s durable and easy to care for. By using various patterns from Studio Moods, we’ve also been able to create a bespoke and exclusive feel throughout public areas.”
With Chevron Columns, Basket Weave, Herringbone Small, Hexagon and Staggered Columns all appearing in The Four Ferns, Reddy Architecture has certainly enjoyed the design flexibility that Studio Moods offers. By choosing two oak effects in Blackjack Oak and Midland Oak, Reddy Architecture keeps a sense of unity throughout The Four Ferns, using pattern to mark different areas.
In rooms, IVC Commercial’s Moduleo 55 Woods collection delivers a comforting home-like esthetic that improves the wellbeing of residents through a close connection to nature. With grain-patterns and textures developed entirely in-house, Moduleo 55 brings a high-level of authenticity.
Designed and made in Belgium, Studio Moods and Moduleo 55 Woods feature Protectonite® to aid maintenance and appearance retention, while also providing a hardwearing floor finish suitable for heavy commercial use. IVC’s Art Intervention carpet tiles, installed with Flex Pro self-adhesive underlay, have also been used in basement storage areas. The floors were installed by Philipe Tiling Contractors and the construction of The Four Ferns overseen by maincontractor, Purcell Construction.
“Looking both smart and inviting, we’re delighted with the end result and the floor plays an important part in helping make The Four Ferns a really attractive proposition for residents, ” continues Danielle Delaney. “What’s more, such is the stand-out nature of the scheme, this project recently won Building of the Year in the Medical & Health Category of the Buidling & Architect of the Year Awards 2021.”
