  • Fountain of Youth Retirement Home
    A futuristic vision of the outdated Retirement Home
  • This project focuses on the outdated design and appearance of retirement homes and aims to create a new face to old age living which most of us dread. Instead I wanted my design to allow you to look forward to the golden years and represent a luxurious and enjoyable place to spend them in. The concept for my design was based on the legend of the Fountain of Youth which created the main focal point of my design which is the waterfall. With the design intended for at least 30 years time, I wanted the design to incorporate something far from what can be seen in retirement homes now. This small 'waterfall' would be created by a series of light jets that would spray water into the pool below.

  • The living pods, which are situated around the edge of the building, have entrances which are illuminated by the glowing light panel around the edge. Each pod also has a decorative wall on the outside with an irregular shaped inlet to allow for a seat to chat with neighbours or experience the healing sounds of the water. The walls of the pods are heavily insulated to ensure that the waterfall can not be heard inside. There is also an outdoor balcony which can be accessed through the glass doors, which creates a place to socialise and enjoy the fresh air.
