The Four Ferns is a €36 million luxurious community nursing home, located in Foxrock in Dublin South. This 7,800 m² award winning development by Purcell Construction is Dublin’s premier elderly living space and the most expensive nursing home development in Ireland.
This innovative nursing home was designed by award-winning architect Michael Freaney of Reddy Architecture & Urbanism.
As with all care facilities, it is imperative to provide a peaceful, quiet environment, that keeps heat in during the cold winter months and provides natural ventilation during the warmer climate in summer.
“The building blends into its sylvan setting through the careful use of earthen tones in its materiality with buff bricks, pigmented renders and fibre cement wall claddings echoing the local slate roofs.
The quality of the architecture plays an important role in improving the health and well-being of residents by providing a multitude of different spaces for residents to enjoy.” – Reddy Architecture
