Albion Mill in Blackburn 109 bed care facility
After designing the full interior design scheme from building footings upwards, starting May 2017, we have finally completed the full site fitout and project handover in December to Verum Victum Healthcare (VVHC) & Blackburn Council.
The building incorporates 109 beds, including 50 extra care apartments, 24 dementia care apartments & 35 intermediate care en-suite bedrooms. The site was previously home to Albion Mill, an iconic landmark on the Blackburn skyline.
The fitout took 4 days and was not without its challenges, however we are delighted with the final result. There are full en-suite dementia bedrooms including 4 different colourways. Fully furnished apartments include bedroom, shower room and open plan living/dining/kitchen.
The English Tea room includes banquette seating and views out to the canal. A mezzanine Library area looks over the double height Lounge/Cafe with full servery and large picture windows. We have included interior design features which refer to this buildings historical past and Blackburn locality. Other communal rooms include TV Lounges and a large open plan Foyer/entrance with bespoke reception counter and local feature map wall.
