Tŷ Llandaff Case Study

Combining a mix of style and comfort in the care sector – How a new care home proved that the two don’t need to be mutually exclusive.

Tŷ Llandaff is a new private residential and nursing home, built on the site of the former St Winefride’s hospital in Pontcanna, a quiet suburb of Cardiff. The luxury 72-bed care home is equipped to provide excellent nursing support for a range of needs for the people of Cardiff.

The new care centre – completed by 55Plus and Principality Commercial – is designed over three storeys and includes the refurbishment of the existing Pembroke House on Conway Road. The original properties had been constructed in 1938 on the grounds of The Lindens, a Victorian villa.

To complement the modern interiors and to add a sense of luxurious style into the surroundings, specialist contractor Carpet Services (Cardiff) Ltd installed a range of high design and durable CFS flooring products. These not only accommodated the needs of the care home and the specification requirements set out by the building contractor, but also were stylish, durable and met the needs of residents.

Within the reception and bar area, CFS Elements in shades Casablanca Oak and Weathered Oak provided a welcoming area for visitors and added a luxury feel with natural wood effect tones. This particular range was chosen because it is hardwearing, scratch resistant and therefore easy to maintain in a heavy traffic reception area.

In the bedrooms, Scala Design in the colour Flax was chosen to complement the colour schemes and create a modern feel, as well as promoting a calm and comfortable environment. This is especially important to support the specific needs of residents living with dementia. In addition, CFS Scala Plain comes with impervious foam backing to help repel liquid spills and create a safe environment for residents.

Within the areas throughout the building that needed to be resistant to dirt, water, and stains, CFS Optimum Tonals was installed.

In addition to supplying the CFS floor coverings, Carpet & Flooring also provided a full complement of accessories, including nosings, adhesives, and screeds.

CFS flooring products are available from specialist flooring supplier Carpet & Flooring, who supply a range of flooring that covers all performance and aesthetic requirements.
