Woods Bagot have taken a considered and holistic approach to the project, underpinned by three key beliefs: –To embrace the heritage character of one of the few places in Australia that demonstrate Arts and Craft in its built fabric. –To explore the contemporary direction of retirement living that creates wellness and a true sense of community. –To celebrate craftsmanship, the inherent beauty of the material, the importance of nature as inspiration, and the value of simplicity, and utility.

Project details

The subject site is unique in its scale, proportion and access with expansive street frontages. Our approach was to create multiple buildings as a series of pavilions that mediate the undulating topgography and existing trees of the site to create a village like scale and community.

The Building Design Principles speak to the vision for high quality architecture, in response to the surrounding context. The predominant material is masonry brickwork of varying tones, articulated by metal work in contrasing colours, offers variety and individual building identity. The choice of primary material has been selected to ensure longevity and offer residents and sense of home.
