ANJULITA COURT, BEDFORD



We have been working on adapting an existing courtyard garden at a fairly modern care home in Bedford.

The original design has a beautiful water feature, pergola and planting but was awkward to use by residents with dementia. The paths are laid out with right angles and some areas are paved in loose gravel, directly opposite access doors. The courtyard is surrounded on all sides by two storeys and gets incredibly hot, with turbulent winds. Our design aims to make walking around the garden easier, by providing new accessible paths across gravel areas, by providing handrails and by easing some of the 90 degree corners. We have also designed a shade shelter, added some lightly foliaged trees for dappled shade and provided social seating. New footpaths will match existing materials so that there is no alarming change in colour or tone.
