As life expectancy increases and medical progress continues to open new doors, so do our requirements for what a care concept – and the building that houses it – should be and provide. This is reflected in the ever greater expectations senior citizens have for their homes. The number of care homes on offer is on the rise, yet the number of spaces each one has available is dropping. This is a situation that requires efficient solutions, as the increase in competition, service concepts, greater expectations and hybrid living concepts all have a direct impact on the functions of the building itself – and its architecture in particular. Access to daylight and fresh air have a key role to play as features that define and enhance the value and experience of the space each resident lives in – not least in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Solarlux offers an almost limitless range of options for providing retirement and care home residents with what they need – our products can enhance the transparency or functionality of your building’s architecture, help to shape and smooth the transition between the inside and the outdoors or, more pragmatically, simply help you to create areas in the garden where your residents can spend more time outside, even in spring and autumn.
