Fairfield has been announced as a finalist in an international interior design award
Fairfield has been announced as a finalist in an international interior design award. HomeSmiths, who were responsible for the interior design of new Fairfield, submitted the project for the Healthcare and Wellness Design category in the SBID (Society of British & International Design) annual awards.
The SBID awards recognise, reward and celebrate design excellence across a broad range of categories and winning a SBID International Design Award is a high achievement.
The Healthcare and Wellness Design category was open to any interior project within a hospital, healthcare facility, care-related property or wellness centre and the judges took into account innovative approaches to healthcare environments and how the patient/visitor is engaged.
The brief to HomeSmiths was to design a scheme that was warm and welcoming for the residents, that would appeal to visitors, especially the younger generation who would be invited to the home for activities, and that enhanced the beautiful light and airy architectural style of the new home. Since residents would be moving from the existing period Fairfield home to a very modern building, the interior design needed to make that transition as reassuring as possible.
The botanical theme and palette used is easy to live with, echoes the garden setting, offers scope for intergenerational activities, and connects with familiar resident pieces from the old home such as the resident made tree collage, now in the new reception.
Jacqui Smith of HomeSmiths said, “We are delighted that our submission for Fairfield has made finalist in the Healthcare and Wellness Design category for the SBID annual awards! It was a lovely project to be involved with and we are pleased with the end results. The botanical theme and colour palette really work with the large windows and garden views.”
