Dining Hall Refurbishment
Prague, Czech Republic
The Novovysočanská Nursing Home in Prague asked us to redesign their current dining room, to make it a dementia-friendly environment. With our proposal, we would like to create an experience of eating together, as if the recipients were going to a restaurant; delicious food, pleasant encounters in a new, intimate atmosphere. At the same time we aimed to create a space that allows the users to feel at home.
The space is divided into different parts with their own character. This way everyone can decide for themselves what they prefer; a quick coffee at the tables by the window, dinner at a large table or a relaxing lunch by the piano.
The kitchen was also remodelled to avoid clean and dirty operations crossing each other. By providing new storage space we tried to enlarge the room not only for nurses, for the waiters but also for the inhabitants.
