Nazareth House, Dublin

Sisters of Nazareth

Nazareth House is a residential care home situated on a leafy site on the outskirts of Dublin. This project, which is phase 1 of an overall masterplan developed for the site by White Ink Architects, involved the replacement of an existing 1970’s 1-storey administrative entrance block with a 3-storey building to accommodate a 30-bed convent/residential care wing, administration facilities and communal resident facilities.

The extension provides a modern frontage to the existing building and gives the home a much needed presence along the Malahide Road. The design opens up the building to existing under-used landscaped courtyards, greatly enhancing the natural light into the building whilst providing a point of orientation and pleasant outlook.

Care was taken to ensure that the layout, interior finishes and colours used reflect the latest research on designing for dementia, mapping and the residents’ needs.
