Moveable wall offers flexibility
to coastal retirement home
Pavilion Court was built by McCarthy & Stone and is a purpose built development for retirement living.
Situated on the sea front of the charming Edwardian seaside town of Felixstowe it consists of 46 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. There is a House Manager on site and a 24-hour emergency call system provided via a personal pendant alarm and call points in the bathrooms and hallway.
Working directly with McCarthy & Stone, Style was asked to create flexible space in the lounge area by giving an open plan feel for general use, but with the freedom to partition off the space when quiet time was preferred.
To deliver this flexibility while retaining a light, open plan feel, Style installed a glass Stylefold moveable wall with a clean and stylish white frame.
With a 32dB acoustic rating this gives the room a quiet, relaxed ambiance when the wall is in place and the inclusion of a pass door also means the wall can remain in position while enabling ease of access by residents and staff.
“This is a simple yet effective solution for dividing space,” said Steve Williams, sales director for Style Midlands.
“The glass moveable wall not only maximises the light and airy feel of the room it also enables staff to check in on residents while passing and it allows residents to see how busy the lounge is without having to physically enter the room.
“Also, thanks to its clean, white styling the wall perfectly complements the interior design of the building making this a practical as well as an aesthetically pleasing feature.”
Stylefold is an easy to operate, flush acoustic moveable wall which can either be hung from a ceiling track or supported by a low profile surface mounted floor track.
With the option of choosing between solid panels or glass, it provides a simple and effective mechanism for creating adaptable space that can be reconfigured in seconds.
