The new Parkhof assisted-living centre in Machelen, Flemish Brabant has 82 bedrooms, assisted-living apartments, various common rooms, a service centre and a cafeteria cum restaurant. The spacious enclosed garden, surrounded by a covered walkaway is the heart of the building. The garden has therapeutic added value as a meeting space where residents enjoy peace and quiet.
We collaborated on the interior design of Parkhof, with special attention going to the light-filled cafeteria. We also helped come up with the Nordic-style concept. We selected the furniture and our styling and deco team also did their magic.
On the request of old people care providers, we designed a family of chairs combining comfort and a designer look to enable less spritely users to stand up more easily.
