Modern living and health centre with social living group concept
The U-shaped building with a partial basement has been designed and built with three-storeys and in keeping with the slight slope of the site. A total of around 6,000 square metres of barrier-free gross floor area have been developed in accordance with the KfW 40 energy-efficiency standard. The modern, rectilinear facade is partially clinkered and its light colour scheme blends in perfectly with the surrounding buildings. With a building height limit of 10.5 metres and appropriate distance and noise reduction measures to Hindenburgstraße, the new building satisfies the unique requirements of the location.
The “Haus Vida Victoria” Life and Health Centre accommodates a total of 112 modern, generously proportioned single rooms, 56 of which are not only barrier-free but also fully wheelchair accessible. On the ground floor, behind the welcoming, hotel-style entrance area with reception and foyer, residents and visitors have access to a hair and podiatry salon, a separate lounge and a spacious restaurant with fresh cuisine and terrace. The ‘open house’ concept ensures that neighbours and guests will always be welcome to socialise with residents, thereby establishing links with the local community. The building also has its own in-house laundry facilities.
The rooms in the “Haus Vida Victoria” building are all single rooms, each with its own bathroom, telephone, TV and internet connection. Residents have the option of furnishing the rooms themselves, allowing them to add their own personal touches and create a more familiar environment. The “Haus Vida Victoria” building is divided into three living groups, one on each floor. The living group concept is intended to ensure a family-like atmosphere. Each living group has an attractively designed common room at its heart, with a kitchen, dining area and terrace, roof terrace or balcony, all of which will strengthen social contacts among the residents.
Ideal location and optimal accessibility
The “Haus Vida Victoria” Life and Health Centre is set in the very heart of Gnarrenburg. As well as being moments from the surrounding greenery and countryside, the centre is also just a few minutes’ walk from shops, the local church, doctors and a range of social amenities. The nearby bus stop and railway station conveniently link Gnarrenburg with other towns and communities in the surrounding area. In addition, ten bicycle parking spaces and 26 car parking spaces – two of which are fully accessible – have been created on the new centre’s grounds, thereby ensuring optimal accessibility for visitors and nursing staff. Residents can also use the park-like outdoor facilities to exercise, relax and socialise.
Cureus proprietary standard guarantees best-in-class construction
“Haus Vida Victoria” has been designed and built in accordance with the Cureus standard for system care homes. This places great importance on uniform, high quality standards and is oriented, among other things, towards the requirements of the operators, focusing on the residents and care staff. In this way, the structural processes and all properties are optimised from the inside to the outside: This concerns, for example, the size and arrangement of rooms to optimize space and walkways. Cureus care homes are also designed and equipped for maximum utility: interior corridors benefit from as much daylight as possible, every room has floor-to-ceiling windows that provide attractive views of the surrounding area, and the modern bathrooms and window fronts always follow the same standardised system approach. Each complex’s architecture and facade incorporate individual touches and are constructed to the highest quality standards, integrating seamlessly into their surroundings. The Cureus system approach also prioritises sustainability, both in terms of a care home’s long-term economic viability and its impact on the environment. All Cureus care homes are, for example, constructed in accordance with the ‘Effizienhaus-40-Standard’, while the bulk procurement of floor coverings or elevator systems, for example, ensures cost synergies and long-term maintenance contracts covering several properties also reduce costs for care home operators. The constant review and optimisation of the Cureus system care home standard guarantees the construction of care homes that truly meet demand.
