With an increased demand for specialist inpatient services, the Galway Hospice has seen their occupancy rate average in excess of 90% during 2015; to cope with demand the Galway Hospice decided to install a high quality temporary accommodation.
Working closely with the client and their design team, Advanced Space Providers aim was to provide a physical environment that created a warm and welcoming feel whilst meeting the highest design specification and surpassing regulations.
An innovative approach by designers allowed us to maximise the floor area (3500sq/ft.) within a restricted site, furthermore this bespoke building utilised different length, width and height modules allowing us to link the new building to the existing hospice. This created a continuous space for both patients and staff.
Within the building, great care and attention was given to the selection of lighting, floor coverings, colour schemes and joinery to promote a warm environment and the addition of 3m internal floor-to-ceiling height created a spacious environment.
