”EFG grasped the concept best of all. They led in both the overview and attention to detail. EFG listened to our needs and desires and understood what we meant by sensory stimulation, social inclusion and contributed with their own ideas. EFG has greatly inspired us to realize this amazing place.”

Challenges and solutions
In the future the elderly have greater demands on individual needs whilst living in a home for the elderly. The challenge was that this new concept should not resemble an institution but rather a hotel or an apartment building. But at the same time the elderly people's specific needs should be met. The key values were sensory stimulation, movement and inclusion, and every room in the building should have its own personality.

Each of the six themed rooms got its own personality. For example, the library is decorated with dark colors and the armchairs are comfortable and ideal for reading. The foyer was decorated as an open welcoming room with high ceilings, glass doors towards the outside and with soft lounge furniture. In the café the residents meet, socialize and take each other on refreshing walks.

The Orangery is bright, open and green with furniture and parasols. The cozy room has comfortable furniture that are easy to get in and out. All floors have different decor with different furniture, and it makes it easy to separate them and makes it easier to find the right floor. The furniture combines comfort with high aesthetics.
