Four Ferns Care Centre - Internal View

Systems Used

Working alongside Window & Roof Lights, our TB50 curtain wall system and ST70 Hi windows and doors were chosen for their thermal and acoustic performances.

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.

Design Criteria

“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
